Report on shrinking space for women’s rights

This week Kvinna till Kvinna launched the report “Suffocating the movement – shrinking space for women’s rights”. Because of growing nationalism, extremism and traditional values, women’s rights organizations are now facing major setbacks in their ability to work for gender equality and peace.

Read more about what this is, how women are affected and why it is happening in our report.
