Theory of Change

Achieving a gender equal world requires systemic change and transformation of patriarchal structures through complementary strategies and approaches. GJC’s theory of change is one such strategy that aims to eliminate legal barriers to gender equality.

  • Women deserve justice for violations of their rights, and states and institutions must be held to account when they fail to ensure gender equality.
  • The progressive interpretation and application of international law and human rights are a strong foundation for gender equality in law and in fact.
  • Multilateral institutions must be grounded in a feminist approach to effectively defend and advance human rights around the world.
  • Change must be driven by those who are most affected, which requires global north organizations to uplift and share power with feminist grassroots actors around the world.
