This story of influence provides an evaluation of the Bridge Gender and Social Movements Cutting Edge Programme carried out under the Sida sponsored Gender, Power and Sexuality programme.
The aim of the Bridge Gender and Social Movements programme is to work towards more inclusive and effective social justice movements, better able to generate deep and lasting positive change, and better equipped to shape inequitable structures and processes. Through interviews with recipients of the Cutting Edge pack, members from communities of practice and programme advisers, this report explores how the process of developing the pack and the pack itself has impacted on them in terms of their perception and knowledge of the issue and their ability to influence policy and practice to support building gender-just movements.
The first chapters provide a background to the purpose and methodology behind the programme development and the collaborative process employed. The last chapters reflect on the programme’s effects, lessons learnt and the next steps in the process.
