In 2017, APWLD developed the capacity of over 1,100 feminists and women’s rights advocates in Asia-Pacific in research, training, and advocacy, and built feminist leadership particularly among grassroots, marginalised and young women. We trained women in evidence-based participatory action research; trade union leadership and organising; strategic advocacy; trade and economic policy and feminist litigation.

We resourced and supported over 90 grassroots feminist activists to engage in at least 13 high-level advocacy spaces at regional and global levels. Our advocacy to influence policy at global, regional and national levels was guided by 35 new feminist tools and knowledge resources and 12 thematic submissions we produced with our members, partners and their constituencies.
