Consultancy for the development of case studies on Intersectional feminist perspectives
RFSU is a Swedish, non-profit and non-governmental organisation, working in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). RFSUs vision is a world in which everyone is free to make decisions about their own bodies and sexuality. Our aim is to spread a knowledge-based and open view of sexuality and relationships issues to overcome prejudices, bridge knowledge gaps and improve sexual health and wellbeing. We run projects and programmes to promote SRHR — both in Sweden and internationally. RFSU works to strengthen international legal, political and financial support for SRHR, and contribute to civil society agency on SRHR, by partnering with other civil society actors and supporting progressive civil society voices in low- and middle-income countries. RFSU partners with approximately 40 civil society organisations in 20 different countries worldwide.
Since 2016 the International Department at RFSU has actively worked on integration of intersectional feminist perspectives. The department has implemented different strategies together with partners to strengthen our understanding and application of intersectional feminist perspectives in our work and organisations. Now we would like to put more efforts into strengthening the applicability/implementation of intersectional feminist perspectives to support RFSU and partners to put intersectional feminist perspectives into practice. To this end, we aim to produce a set of case studies documenting work done by partner organisations incorporating intersectional feminist perspectives at the practical level in program, policy and methods as well as within their organisations.
