Strengthening resources for feminist movements
Around 150 women, girls and trans* activists from 20 countries, speaking eight different languages converged in Bangkok from 25 – 27 September 2019 to examine the multifaceted reality of feminist funding in Asia and the Pacific region. Organised by eight women’s fund’s members of the Asia and the Pacific chapter of Prospera – International Network of Women’s Funds, the Convergence brought together grantee-partners, regional allies, and funders to talk about resources, power, and the processes through which they are negotiated.
