As part of its commitments to promoting gender justice, Oxfam has started to invest in an approach called ‘Transformative Leadership for Women’s Rights’. As this is an unfamiliar term for many of our staff and partners, this guide explores what transformative leadership for women’s rights means, and how it links to women’s rights and gender justice.

The guide explores what distinguishes transformative leadership from other forms of leadership, and how change differs from transformation. It also explains why transformative leadership is important for Oxfam, and what we are trying to achieve by promoting it. By exploring what transformative leadership for women’s rights means in practice, this guide demonstrates how we can apply it in our programmes and our organizations.
