Achieving Transformative Feminist Leadership: A Toolkit for Organisations and Movements

This toolkit was developed to help individuals and organisations dedicated to advancing a feminist social change agenda—an agenda that believes that all development and social justice must be rooted in gender and social equality. It is based on the assumption that such processes require a diff erent type of leadership, what we may term ‘Transformative Feminist Leadership’ (TFL). Both feminism and Transformative Feminist Leadership are defi ned and explained in more detail in the following section (Module 1). The toolkit is based largely on the concept paper entitled “Feminist Leadership for Social Transformation: Clearing the Conceptual Cloud” by Srilatha Batliwala, published by CREA in early 2011.
