Oak Foundation’s Issues Affecting Women Programme (IAWP) seeks to contribute to a world in which women have the rights, capacity and opportunity to experience safety from violence and to enjoy their full and equal human rights. Specifically, the programme aims to build a strong and vibrant women’s movement that is empowered to challenge patriarchal norms, tackle the root causes of inequality, and demand the full spectrum of women’s rights. Additionally, we work to end the existing patterns of violence in the family, outside the home, and in crisis contexts by ensuring rights-based laws and policies guarantee an environment in which women are safe from violence. We also support a broad range of services that empower women to recover from the trauma of violence and to rebuild their lives.
The IAWP team strives to live the values it works to advance. In addition to a deep commitment to advancing women’s rights, our culture is characterized by collegiality, mutual support, high expectations and laughter. We are currently recruiting a new Programme Associate to the team.
