Jenny Edwards is a Project Manager with over ten years’ experience of working on gender issues including the Pathways of Women’s Empowerment programme. Currently she is working with the Power and Popular Politics Cluster on the Action for Empowerment and Accountability Research Programme.

Pathways is a research and communication programme which seeks to discover where women are achieving real gains despite or because of policy and practice. It looks at how this has happened, and aims to make these pathways visible so that we can build on these revealed successes.
