The International Gender and Trade Network IGTN

Linked with Mohau Pheko – South Africa, with The World Development Movement WDM, with The WDM Death Counter, and with New social justice movements in a changing reality.

The International Gender and Trade Network is a network of feminist gender specialists who provide technical information on gender and trade issues to women’s groups, NGOs, social movements and governments. IGTN acts as a political catalyst to enlarge the space for a critical feminist perspective and global action on trade and globalization issues. It is a Southern-led network that builds South/North cooperation in the work of developing more just and democratic policy from a critical feminist perspective. IGTN is organized in eight regions: Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Central Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Gulf, North America and the Pacific.
