GENDER JUSTICE Women of Courage

Women are key catalysts for change when they create and exercise leadership in human rights, peacebuilding and ecological justice.

KAIROS’ commitment to Gender Justice is expressed through the Women of Courage program. This program is rooted in the understanding that while women around the world face many injustices, they are also key catalysts and agents for change when they create and exercise leadership in human rights and peacebuilding, processes often dominated by men’s voices and experiences. Women are also key actors in the struggle for ecological justice, organizing their communities to address resource extraction and climate change. KAIROS’ Women of Courage program brings together women from the global South and Canada, particular from Indigenous and diaspora communities, for shared analysis, learning, strategizing and social action.
