Warriors Work Plan
• The project is aimed at facilitating a broader analysis of what
gender oppression means in various contexts, such as domestic violence,
child sexual abuse and refugee rights and how it affects various communities.
We envision developing an educational tool that can be used by groups
working on gender rights to confront and address gender-based issues.
• To develop a deeper understanding of gender oppression by analyzing
how gender oppression affects our own work, specifically, domestic violence,
child sexual abuse and refugee rights
• To develop an educational tool that can be used by any individual
or organization working to combat gender oppression.
