Strengthening leadership of women living with HIV in Asia and the Pacific
The ICW Feminist School is an ongoing program, first implemented in Southern Africa in 2014. In 2015, ICW Asia Pacific implemented their first regional Feminist School. ICWAP would also implement Feminist Schools in 2017 (which also resulted in the development of their strategic plan), and 2019.
Since the first iteration that ICW Feminist School has been adapted and revised numerous times not only to fit into the needs of the diverse communities were the feminist school was being implemented but also to conform to donor agendas. The constant iterations of the Feminist School left a document that was only understood by key facilitators to implement in person trainings. It was important to therefore meet with both ICW and ICWAP to discuss current challenges what exactly they needed and wanted to see as a final product for the Feminist School.
