IGUALES builds on Oxfam’s work on women’s rights in Honduras since 2008. It adopts a holistic approach to gender justice and women’s rights and integrates women´s economic empowerment, prevention of violence against women and women’s active citizenship. The programme aims to strengthen women’s agency and transformational leadership – primarily in rural areas, although there is also a pilot in urban areas – to improve their access to, and control over, productive assets, income and their own time, and to reduce the violence perpetrated against them and the levels of impunity in these cases.
This document focuses on how the programme supported networking and coalition building to achieve national policy change.
