"A seminal work that will greatly impact the field of women's human rights and empowerment. It will help more than one generation of women think of themselves as leaders within their own societies and cultures."—Sakena Yacoobi, founder, Afghan Institute of Learning
Leading to Choices, developed by the Women’s Learning Partnership for Rights, Development, and Peace (WLP) in collaboration with its partner organizations in the Global South, is based on a of leadership as horizontal, inclusive, and participatory. The alternative leadership model presented in this handbook responds to the need for leaders who aspire to create egalitarian, democratic, and pluralistic societies based on collaborative decision-making, coalition-building, and gender equality. The manual has been used in workshops around the world, where participants have included women, young girls, and men; Muslims and Christians; and human rights activists,
university students, women NGO representatives, refugees, and domestic workers among others.
Women's Learning Partnership is an independent, international, non governmental organization in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
