Women’s rights are challenged all over the worl
The means of funding Pacific women’s organisations (PWOs) is changing rapidly, bringing in new partners and a new way of working. But there is a gender data gap in relation to donor funding of PWOs. And there is a need to amplify and facilitate the voice of PWOs in funding decisions.
