Our focus is on working with and building networks to advance gender equality – whether locally in Australia, in the Asia Pacific Region, or the World. We work in partnership with locally-based organisations in Asia Pacific. Being geographically close to our partners allows us to strengthen networks, share resources, sustain exchanges and support each other’s research and advocacy.
IWDA respects and acknowledges the life cycle experiences of diverse women and girls. We’ve always understood that women are not a homogenous group and that gender-based discrimination intersects with other sources of discrimination including race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion and socio-cultural background.
