Consultancy Opportunity: Action Research & EvaluationActionAid and DFID are looking to recruit an independent consultant (or consultancy team) to support action research and the final evaluation of a multi-country project tackling violence against women and girls in urban areas, in cities in Bangladesh, Kenya, Myanmar and Zimbabwe.
The ‘She Can’ project aims to tackle violence against women and girls (VAWG) in public spaces within urban areas in four countries and promote women’s rights to the city. The project is being implemented by ActionAid and partners, and funded through the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) through the UK Aid Match funding mechanism. This project aims to increase the safety, mobility, access to justice and gender-responsive public services for 60,990 women and girls living in poverty and exclusion, who are vulnerable to violence in 20 urban areas in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Kenya and Zimbabwe.
 The project started in November 2014 and will finish in November 2017.ActionAid and DFID plan to conduct a joint study of the She Can project with the support of a consultancy team. The primary purpose of the study will be to test the project’s theory of change and deepen understanding of how change happens in relation to reducing VAWG in urban areas. 
An evaluation is sought that will apply an action research approach over the life-cycle of the project, through three phases. It is intended that the consultant(s) will: review programme intervention strategies, develop appropriate monitoring tools and learning strategy to help refine the theory of change (phase 1); support targeted data collection and review at six monthly intervals and identify where outcomes are likely to be achieved (phase 2); conduct a theory-based evaluation involving an in-depth case study in two countries to verify outcomes and further unpack change processes between particularly relevant parts of the theory of change that have shown the promise to contribute towards development impact (phase 3). DFID and ActionAid are thus looking to recruit an independent consultant (or consultancy team) to provide high-level technical advice on the evaluation’s design and to oversee and implement the phased evaluation, generating robust, credible and contextualised evidence relating to the project. 
The full Terms of Reference including details of how to apply are available on the ActionAid International website: The deadline for applying is Friday 7th August. We are aiming to select the consultant by early September (interviews provisionally scheduled the week of the 7th September).

Senior Regional Legal Adviser in Nairobi, Kenya with The Centre for Reproductive Rights

Deadline: Until filled

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Organization: The Center for Reproductive Rights

About the Center

The Center for Reproductive Rights (the Center) is the premier global legal organization dedicated to advancing women's reproductive health, self-determination, and dignity. Its mission is straightforward and ambitious: to advance reproductive health and rights as fundamental human rights that all governments around the world are legally obligated to protect, respect, and fulfill. 

Headquartered in New York City, the Center has regional offices in Bogota, Geneva, Kathmandu, Nairobi, and Washington, DC and a staff of more than 130 diverse professionals. Its annual operating budget is approximately $23 million, the result of an extraordinary growth trajectory; the Center is now poised for a new phase of significant expansion through its next Strategic Plan.

The Center’s game-changing litigation and advocacy work, combined with its unparalleled expertise in constitutional, comparative, and international human rights law, have transformed how reproductive rights are understood by courts, governments, and human rights bodies worldwide. It has played a key role in securing landmark legal victories in the U.S., Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe on issues including access to life-saving obstetrics care, contraception, safe abortion services, and comprehensive sexuality information, as well as the prevention of forced sterilization and child marriage. It has brought groundbreaking cases before national courts, U.N. Committees, and regional human rights bodies, led the development of historic, proactive legislation advancing robust protections for reproductive rights, and has built the legal capacity of women’s rights advocates in more than 55 countries.

The Center is led by Nancy Northup, President & CEO, who was recruited to the Center in 2003 for her rich mix of experience as a constitutional litigator, federal prosecutor, and women’s rights advocate—as well as her reputation for intelligence, passion, and creativity. She has led the organization’s exceptional growth, tripling its operating budget over the course of a decade, sharpening its strategic focus for even greater impact on ensuring reproductive health and freedom as a fundamental human right, and establishing the Center as an international resource for legal strategy and innovation. She was previously the founding director of the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law; a prosecutor and Deputy Chief of Appeals in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York; and a law clerk to the Honorable Alvin B. Rubin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. She has taught human rights and constitutional law as an adjunct professor at NYU Law School and Columbia Law School and appears frequently in leading media.

Menstrual Health Education Programme Developer with Irise in Uganda

Deadline: 3 August 2015

Location: Uganda

Organization: Irise

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced young professional to contribute to work on a neglected women’s rights issue and to the growth of a small organisation. They will work in close collaboration with like-minded individuals in Uganda and play an active role in shaping the future of Irise. They must be passionate about the empowerment of women and excited about the challenges of working in a start-up.


Irise is a fast growing organisation dedicated to addressing inadequate Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM), an issue identified by marginalised women and girls as a driver of gender inequality and disempowerment through an insidious impact on their ability to engage in education and make good decisions about their reproductive health. We found that 74% of girls in rural Uganda believe that period pain is a sign of illness and 43% believe it is harmful to run or dance during their period.

We believe that menstruation and puberty are the first steps in a girl's sexual and reproductive life and that access to information and support during this important period can give her the confidence to make choices about her own body throughout her life. We also aim to work with men and boys to help them understand and respect women's bodies.

Through creating a safe space to talk about menstruation we can address the systemic misinformation surrounding women's menstrual and reproductive health, ranging from doctor's advising that sex can cure period pain to the idea that menstruating women are dirty and can contaminate others and fears that hormonal contraceptives can cause deformed babies. We also break the silence surrounding other taboo issues and begin important dialogues about gender roles and girls’ rights.

We work to develop and deliver creative menstrual health education (MHE) that other organisations can integrate into their existing work. Our progress towards this goal is summarised below. 

  • Over 1,000 East African girls are given the opportunity to ask anonymous questions about menstruation and a Menstrual Health Education Resource designed to answer these questions is developed and piloted in Kisumu, Kenya. 
  • Baseline Data on girls’ knowledge on menstruation in Uganda reveals serious knowledge deficits. A tool for monitoring knowledge of menstruation is validated in Uganda.
  • A programme attempting to engage medical students and local people in delivery of menstrual health education concludes that misinformation is systemic and that taboos and myths mean that more than factual information is needed.
  • Irise launches a Menstrual Hygiene Toolkit which includes an updated Menstrual Health Education Resource. To date it has been shared with over 30 organisations and used in Nepal and Bolivia. 
  • Two Irise trustees collaborate with Theatre for a Change to learn about their participatory teaching methods which have a good track record at achieving attitude and behaviour change around HIV/AIDs. 
  • These teaching methods are applied to menstruation and piloted in Uganda. Preliminary data suggests that the teaching improves girls’ knowledge. Resources for training educators and teachers and delivering participatory teaching in schools and the community are developed.
  • The teaching is delivered in schools as part of a research study to establish the effect of a Menstrual Hygiene Programme on school girls’ absenteeism.
  • Irise develops a Menstrual Hygiene superhero cartoon to be shared with schools around Menstrual Hygiene Day 2015.

Role Description:

The individual will build on the existing work and experience of Irise International to develop a train the trainer course and other creative resources to support the delivery of menstrual health education in East Africa. The materials will be developed and piloted through our programme in Jinja and then promoted more widely so that other organisations can integrate them into their work.

The individual will help to establish a train the trainer programme and work in close collaboration with the our social enterprise Irise Uganda Ltd to ensure that communities receiving Easy Pads (reusable pads) are also able to access the information they need. They will work closely with the Menstrual Health Education Trainer based in our Jinja office as well as training and supporting other trainers and organisations.

Manage and train the Jinja office based MHE Trainer to help and support this work and encourage them to take increasing levels of responsibility for the programme

Train and support regional trainers to deliver MHE training to organisations in their areas
Collaborate with the Business and Sales Manager of Irise Uganda Ltd to ensure the education and product provision complement one another

Knowledge Building Programme Officer, Musawah Secretariat in Morocco

Deadline: 31 July 2015
Location: Rabat, Morocco
Organization: Musawah

Musawah is a global movement for equality and justice in the Muslim family that advances human rights for women in Muslim contexts in both their public and private lives.

We act to grow the movement, build knowledge and advocate for change in discriminatory laws and practices. We use a framework grounded in Islamic teachings, human rights, constitutional guarantees and the lived realities of women and men. Musawah was launched in February 2009 at a Global Meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, that was attended by over 250 women and men from some 50 countries of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North America and the Pacific.

Musawah is in the process of completing a long-term, multi-faceted Knowledge Building Initiative on Qiwamah and Wilayah. This initiative resulted in the book Men in Charge? Rethinking Authority in Muslim Legal Tradition (Oneworld, 2015). It also facilitated the documentation of life stories of 58 women from 10 countries through the work of teams of Musawah Advocates involved in the Global Life Stories Project.

The Knowledge Building Programme Officer will help develop the final outputs from this qiwamah and wilayah initiative, and will coordinate the next phase of Musawah’s knowledge building activities focusing on building egalitarian jurisprudence on Muslim marriage. This is a unique opportunity to work with scholars and activists in an empowering, democratic process of producing and sharing knowledge related to women’s rights in Islam.

Musawah Knowledge Building Principles:

Musawah is a knowledge building movement, facilitating access to existing knowledge and creating new knowledge about women’s rights in Islam. We seek to apply feminist and rights-based lenses in understanding and searching for equality and justice within Muslim legal tradition. Such lenses help reveal the tension between the egalitarian and hierarchical voices in the tradition. This allows the emergence of women’s voices, which were for so long silenced in the production of religious knowledge, so that women’s concerns and interests can be reflected.

Musawah’s overall knowledge building objective is to build and share knowledge to support equality and justice in the Muslim family, using a holistic approach that combines Muslim jurisprudence, international human rights standards, national laws and constitutional guarantees of equality and non-discrimination, and the lived realities of women and men.

We believe that the production and sharing of knowledge should be participatory, recognise non-traditional forms of expertise, and begin from contexts rather than texts. In this way, the knowledge produced will be grounded in the lived realities of women and men, with such realities informing the approach to the issues and the questions being asked.

Job Description:

The Musawah Knowledge Building Programme Officer coordinates the activities of the Knowledge Building Working Group and collaborates with the Capacity Building, International Advocacy, and Communications Programme Officers and Working Groups to ensure the knowledge built is being shared widely.

The Knowledge Building Programme Officer works closely with the Musawah Knowledge Building Working Group to coordinate and implement programme planning and activities. She reports directly to the Musawah Coordinator in Rabat, Morocco, and the Convenor of the Working Group.


Programme Planning and Implementation
  • Work with Knowledge Building Working Group and members of the Secretariat in initiating, conceptualising and planning programmes and activities, in line with the Musawah Strategic Direction.
  • Coordinate the effective implementation of all knowledge building activities, including:
    • Facilitate the conceptualisation of a new knowledge building initiative that builds on ideas and insights arising from previous Musawah projects and on the centuries of effort by women around the world to promote and protect equality and justice in the family and in society;
    • Lead the implementation of this knowledge building initiative;
    • Ensure Musawah knowledge building principles are reflected in all aspects of the project work; 
    • Work closely with the Knowledge Building Working Group and scholars and activists commissioned to contribute to specific areas of the initiative such as writing background papers, conducting participatory research, and commenting on ideas and documents;
    • Organise workshops and meetings, including developing participant lists, drafting agendas to ensure strong participation from diverse participants, overseeing logistics, ensuring adequate documentation, and developing outputs and/or incorporating ideas and information into broader initiative outputs.
    • Ensure that documents are researched, drafted, consolidated, edited, and proofread so they convey complex ideas in simple, accessible ways. 
    • Facilitate and document regular Knowledge Building Working Group meetings (virtual and in-person) and maintain regular communications with the Working Group Convenor and members. 

Contributions to the Secretariat and movement

  • Work closely with the other Musawah programme officers and regularly participate in Secretariat, IAG and Steering Committee meetings (virtual and in-person) in order to share knowledge building activities and perspectives so they cross-fertilize with other Musawah areas of work.
  • Represent Musawah at various national, regional and international meetings to share knowledge building activities and ideas.
  • Contribute to the needs of the Secretariat and assist other Secretariat members in preparation for events and activities.

  • Develop fundraising proposals for knowledge building activities with support from the Coordinator, Resource Mobilization Working Group, and Steering Committee.
  • Prepare narrative reports related to knowledge building activities for donors.

Knowledge, Skills and Experience:

The small team working with the Musawah Secretariat are not so much ‘staff’ as activists and professionals who are deeply committed to Musawah’s principles and who work together to advance Musawah. They are therefore expected to be mainly self-managing and self-motivated, contributing effectively to Musawah.

As Musawah addresses equality and justice in the Muslim family, the majority of those leading Musawah and the majority of those working in the Secretariat are expected to have personal experience of Muslim family laws or practices.

The Knowledge Building Programme Officer should be able to meet some or all of the following:

  • Extensive knowledge and/or research experience in issues related to women, gender and Islam.
  • Passionate belief in the vision, mission and objectives of Musawah.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work effectively in collaboration with diverse groups of people and lead virtual teams.

New Delhi || India || Multiple Openings || ComMutiny - the youth collective(CYC)

Coordinator – Media Network
ComMutiny - The Youth Collective (CYC)
Location: New Delhi, Delhi
Job Email
Coordinator – Media Network


ComMutiny represents the ‘the first mutiny within’ that evolves when, as young people we engage deeply with diverse communities, and through that we change ourselves as much as we change the world.

Set up in 2008, Commutiny – The Youth Collective (CYC) works toward facilitating the engagement of youth in social change action. We do this through building youth leadership in society and creating an understanding, acceptability, and demand for youth spaces across stakeholder groups.

Beyond the four legitimate social ‘spaces’ of family, livelihood/education, friends, and leisure, there is a 5th Space that young people occupy that truly enables young people to develop themselves by engaging in social action. The 5th Space is a safe space that equips young people to understand themselves, address conflicts, build cross-border relationships, clarify their values/stances, and develop leadership skills. Find out more about our work on

At CYC, we have been experimenting with this 5th Space, a space that can make the other four count. The 5th Space is grounded in the belief that youth-hood is a time for identity seeking through experiments in the real world. We architect such 5th space journeys for youth where they can get a deeper understanding of their whole selves by acting for social change and also work to promote acceptability and demand for 5th spaces through media engagement, policy advocacy. Our main programs through which we architect and promote 5th spaces are:

Commutiny Media Network (CMN), is a program that seeks to create a learning space for organisations to debate, discuss and develop a shared understanding on youth development and active citizenship. We use media to get youth voices expressed and heard at different levels by different stakeholders. Through conceptualization, creation and dissemination of a wide range of diverse media products CMN promotes the idea of youth development through a 5th Space lens and bring this concept into the mainstream, building dialogue, conversation and demand for 5th Spaces.

We have designed some of the most innovate and high impact campaigns for young people, including My Space, My Manifesto focusing on youth participation in democrary, MustBol, a campaign against gender based violence, and Bas! Stop Discrimination Right Now, an innovative campaign on wheels, where citizens are invited to board a bus specially designed to promote social inclusion through appropriate messaging.

Our 5th Space films have also gained popularity with young people and many have been featured in film festivals and won awards.

Changelooms - Learning and Leadership Journey is a 1-year leadership support programme that encourages, recognizes, and supports young change leaders working on social change initiatives with a focus on youth development. The programme offers exciting opportunities for intensive personal & organizational development. This year the programme is engaging with 100 change initiatives led by young passionate individuals especially focusing on enhancing social inclusion across castes, tribes, religious groups, gender, disability, and geography. This program is being run in partnership with Pravah and PACS. Pravah’s vision is to build youth leadership for social change and promote active citizenship through its various programs.
