critical analysis and research

WoMin works to build analysis and ideas which unpick and challenge the dominant mainstream narratives. To this end, we undertake feminist political economy research, ecofeminist impact assessments, plan ecofeminist costs benefit analyses and we write critically. Following this we present ideas that are crafted in and through our work with activists and organisations across the region.
