Women's Empowerment and Leadership Development for Democratisation

Institute for Women’s Empowerment

The Institute for Women’s Empowerment was set up by a group of feminist activists, engaged researchers and political advocates, who are active in regional and international networks working on various issues around the empowerment of women.  These are, among others, religious fundamentalisms, land rights, sexualities, political participation and economic justice.  IWE maintains a small secretariat in Hong Kong, while programmes are implemented in different countries by local project teams.
