This project aims to support Sudan’s transition to a civilian-led, democratic, gender-equal state by addressing Sudan’s discriminatory legacy against women. This project contributes to legal reform, raises awareness on women's rights, provides support for women’s political participation, and trains youth on human rights and feminism to sustain reforms in the future. Inter Pares works collaboratively with local counterparts to deepen women’s political power in Sudan through engagement with transitional political structures and foster an environment that supports women’s inclusion and addresses the root causes of misogyny and patriarchy in Sudan. Project activities include advocacy, capacity-building and relationship-building.

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved access to rights by women in Sudan; (2) enhanced participation of women and meaningful inclusion of gendered perspectives in Sudan’s political transition; (3) enhanced gender-responsive culture of democratic political engagement, understanding and discourse in Sudan; and (4) improved Sudanese civil society organizations and feminist groups’ effectiveness to collectively advocate for and advance women’s/girls’ rights.
