This is the third in the series of chapters about the group of feminist bureaucrats learning and sharing their political craft. The scene moves to an international meeting that exposes how power shapes legitimate knowledge and how strategies may fail.
Resilience, subversion, and alliance-building are all necessary to making a difference in politically complex and sometimes hostile organisational environments. This is the continuation of a series of fictionalised conversations begun in chapters 4 and 8 of this book, in which the author is a participant observer.
