Women Advocate for Bodies, Voices and Resources

It’s time to Power Up! and more fully address the root causes that prevent gender equality. We need to build women’s voice and leadership and strengthen women-led movements to shift power and advance women’s rights.

Power Up! is a consortium of women’s rights organisations led by JASS, together with the Coalition of African Lesbians (CAL), a queer, Pan-African, feminist organisation; PEKKA, a national women-headed family empowerment network in Indonesia; and Gender at Work (G@W), an international feminist knowledge network. Together with over 200 partners, we have come together to build, organise, mobilise and transform power in 17 countries across the globe.

Power Up! will engage with women human rights defenders (WHRDs) and their organisations and networks, particularly those that represent constituencies that have been marginalised in their communities and social movements (LBQ women, HIV+ women, sex workers, women workers and rural and indigenous women). Together, we will be building, organising, mobilising and transforming power on three strategic agendas: bodies, voices and resources.
