Popular Education Workshops
The scope of CWGL's human rights education activities and materials are designed to reach individuals or groups working at all levels—from those helping women with specific needs and interests at the grassroots to extensive networks of international organizing campaigns. Participatory methodologies are used to help groups explore the meaning of women's rights, beginning with women's own experiences. In addition to the dozens of presentations and workshops held each year, CWGL published Local Action/Global Change: Learning About the Human Rights of Women and Girls, a comprehensive interactive training manual which covers a wide spectrum of human rights and is based on the experiences of women's groups around the world. CWGL also publishes materials in languages other than English through its Feminist Translation Project. Finally, CWGL maintains a resource center which is available for use by scholars, students, researchers and activists.
