Women Navigate Power: Stories of Rights Work

JASS (Just Associates)

With Action Aid International, JASS facilitated a structured participatory process for women's rights activists to document stories that reflect innovative insights and lessions for navigating, resisting and engaging power. A group of activists was brought together for an intial "writeshop" in July 2005, creating the space for reflection, sharing of stories and individual writing time that is so rare in the daily routines of most activists. Authors re-convened at the 10th International Forum of AWID for further exchange and honing of their stories. This exciting collection, which ranges from grassroots organizing strategies with women-headed households in Indonesia, to the challenges of linking collective empowerment to empowerment within the home for Babassu nut-breakers in rural Brazil, is now available.
