The focus of AWID's 'Where is the Money for Women's Rights?' research in 2009 was to examine some of the most important shifts, as well as the persistent trends. We looked at:
i. how the shifting context is impacting possibilities for resource mobilization for women's organizing (presented in this document);
ii. what impact the financial crisis and economic recession is having on key donor sectors; and
iii. experiences to date and levels of support from some of the recent dedicated funds or budget lines focused on advancing gender equality (e.g. MDG3 Fund, UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, etc).
