This theme explores how to create more demand for women’s empowerment, and how coalitions seeking to build commitment work effectively to influence and change the institutions that exercise public power, and dismantle obstructions to women’s empowerment.

It explores how to institutionalise and legitimise women’s empowerment in the policies, actions and populations (staff, members, leaders) of these institutions.

How do we create greater accountability within institutions that exercise public power, so as to promote social justice and wellbeing for all?

Listen to Mariz Tadros, Building Constituencies researcher, speaking about legitimacy of leadership and justice agendas and the ways women are gaining political agency.
