The Need To Resource Feminist Movements Has Never Been Greater. Where’s the Money for Feminist Organizing?

AWID’s latest funding analysis show that 99% of development aid and foundation grants do not reach women’s rights and feminist organizations. WROs receive only 0.12% of the total Official Development Assistance and 0.4% of all gender-related aid. 48% of women’s rights and feminist organizations in the Global South operate on limited annual budgets of $30,000 or less.

Yet the urgency to adequately resource the full diversity of the ecosystem of feminist movements has never been greater.
