What we do

We collaborate with young womenindividuals and networks, mother’s group, Women Human Rights Defenders and women’s rights organisations to bridge capacities on bodily integrity and women’s movement to transform structures that inhibit equality.

Working Area of LOOM

  • We bridge feminist leadership and collectives of women’s rights activists and between activists for learning and support, solidarity and sustainability.
  • We engage in Feminist Epistemologies as a process to collectively produce new and diverse knowledge that dismantles patriarchy, challenges the status quo and sets new agendas. Our space in Kathmandu works as a hub for workshops and exchanges to generate momentum that fuels women’s movement.
  • We advocate for the recognition of sexuality as bodily autonomy and human rights rather than prevention of diseases.
  • We engage with the internet as a political space; we recognise that online violence is a manifestation of offline violence and we build and promote a digital movement that addresses such phenomena.

COMMUNICATION: LOOM is committed to Openness in communication, adopt technological advancement and innovative strategies for efficient and effective advocacy work

ACTION: LOOM believes in working with feminist values forging collaborative networking and partnerships with women, youths, girls to achieve common goal.

PARTICIPATION: LOOM believes that participation must not be limited to only numbers, and to certain age, gender, class and caste. Women and young women must be included at the inception stage of decision-making processes on plans and policies designed for them. Using women to validate final decisions and actions without their participation in prior decisionmaking process is a step towards inequality and anti-democratization policies.

IDENTIFICATION OF LOCAL ISSUE AND STRATEGIES: LOOM believes in identifying local issues and strategies to address concerns of discrimination and disorder among species. This leads to ownership of processes, and visibility of different forms of approach crucial to address women’s rights.

MULTI THEMATIC UNDERSTANDING: LOOM believes in using a multi thematic understanding towards an existing situation. It is a tool aimed to address an issue from larger perspective rather than recognizing a single element as the cause of discrimination.
