awid-pictureThe Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) is an international feminist membership organisation that works to achieve gender justice and women’s human rights by strengthening the collective voice, impact and influence of global women’s rights advocates, organizations and movements.

For the 13th time, the #AWID Forum once again became the epicenter of feminism, this time in the stunning city of Bahía, Brazil where over 2,000 women came together under the theme: “Feminist Futures: Building Collective Power for Rights and Justice”.

Delegates from the YWCA / ACF do Brasil, YWCA Canada and YWCA Papua New Guinea, joined former and current staff members of the World YWCA to deepen shared leadership both, in theory and practice, in an exciting programme that went on from 8 – 11 September.
