Women-gov (2012-2014) was a feminist action-research project supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), that aimed at enhancing marginalised women's active citizenship and their engagement with local governance, across three sites in India, Brazil and South Africa. The partnering organisations were IT for Change in India,Instituto Nupef in Brazil and the New Women's Movement in South Africa.
At each of the three sites, the project aimed towards developing a sustainable techno-social intervention model for enabling marginalised women's collectives to enhance their active engagement with governance structures and the collective articulation and negotiation of their interests; and building peer-to-peer networks for increasing their political participation.
