Kvinna Till Kvinna


Overview

The program “Feminist Power in Action for Women’s Economic Rights” (FemPawer) aims to strengthen the capacities of young women who face multiple economic gender-based violence (E/GBV) discriminations in Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Tunisia to become leaders for change. FemPawer is led by a consortium of 4 organizations and consists of a network of 39 Women’s Rights Organizations (WROs), also referred to as Partner Organizations (POs), that are diverse and vary in size, experience, geographical location, and profile.

In Jordan, nine WROs conducted a research on eGBV. Kvinna till Kvinna and the Arab Women Organization (AWO) are seeking a consultancy team to review, translate, and compile these research studies into a single booklet.
