Drawing on direct experience, this book is about feminists working politically to promote their organisations' gender equality goals. The aim is that by sharing this experience, the book's contributors can help others in similar positions to debate and reflect on the challenges of their jobs, and that readers from within the wider international women's movement will gain insights to help them engage more strategically with their allies inside development organisations.

From a theoretical perspective, the literature stresses the significance of supportive individuals positioned within the bureaucratic system. Thus the book's insider standpoint is its academic contribution - describing and analysing the political processes of everyday bureaucratic life in which feminists assert their agency and creativity.
