Oxfam's Guide to Feminist Influencing

This guide was designed to help Oxfam staff apply feminist principles and practices to campaigning (including digital and public campaigns), policy and advocacy. It helps people develop simple steps of "putting women in the heart of all they do".

"While focused on influencing, which in Oxfam largely comprises of policy development, advocacy and campaigning, including alliance and movement building, many of the themes presented here are also relevant for programs. This guide builds on and can be used alongside other Oxfam resources for policy, advocacy and campaigns, many of which are linked to throughout. We begin with an overview of what it means to have a “feminist approach” to influencing, and why it matters, then address internal organizational culture, which is where a feminist approach really starts."
