Isis International was founded in Rome, Italy in 1974 and moved its office to Manila, Philippines in 1991. For 36 years, Isis International has been working through media and information and communications technologies (ICTs) towards achieving women’s human rights and facilitating networking and information sharing of women’s movements in the global South.
We envision a world where women’s access and ability to actively participate in media and information and communications systems contribute to women’s empowerment and development.
Isis International advocates for the realisation of women’s human rights in the struggle against patriarchal and fundamentalist forces by documenting feminist visions, creating critical communications, and strengthening social movements. Working primarily with women’s groups and networks that use communications for women’s empowerment, Isis employs feminist analyses, multimedia production, advocacy, networking, and capacity-building strategies.
