WLP produces culture-specific training curriculum for women in the Global South, particularly Muslim-majority societies. In cooperation with WLP, these training materials are translated, adapted, and tested by women's organizations indigenous to the intended participant group.
We create a range of multimedia materials to document our South-South and South-North dialogues - panels, symposia, and virtual meetings of prominent leaders and activists addressing major challenges to women and girls in the Global South.
WLP's Translation Series seeks to make available translations of important works developed in the Global South for the advancement of women's human rights, and WLP's President Mahnaz Afkhami has edited a number of essay collections addressing issues of gender, rights, development and peace.
Additionally, our online Directory of Women Leaders seeks to increase the visibility of women leaders, particularly those from the Global South and those working on Global South issues.
Finally, our Resources section provides a wide array of key texts, legal cases, advocacy material, statistics and references related to our programmatic areas.
