The 'Raising Poor and Marginalised Women's Voices in Liberia' project is part Oxfam's global Raising Her Voice (RHV) programme, which seeks to promote the rights and capacity of poor women to engage effectively in governance at all levels through increased voice and influence and more effective institutional accountability. Oxfam Liberia, with two local partners, Women of Liberia Peace Network (WOLPNET) and Women NGO Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL), has been working to support the establishment of a vibrant coalition for poor and marginalised women in eight counties and encourage more responsive governance through greater compliance with the African Women's Rights Protocol. This report documents the findings of a qualitative impact evaluation, completed in April 2012, which used process tracing to assess the effectiveness of the project at increasing government's responsiveness to women's concerns, and decreasing incidence of gender based violence (GBV) and rape.
