Isis International is looking for story-teller who gets inspired by even the smallest initiatives that advance feminist principles in transforming the world. We need an individual who finds joy in reading; communicates powerfully; and is savvy in the use of strategic and appropriate tools, including social media.
She or he must be able to deliver on a part-time basis, approximately 12-15 hours per month. Every month, this person must be able to:
- Write about rare documents about the feminist movements in the South (1-2 articles per month
- Write about emerging initiatives and actors who are challenging new and old forms of misogyny and inequality (1-2 articles per month for the Isis International website);
- Source content towards producing weekly social media calendars (1 social media calendar per month, curating 60-70 content)
- Assist in re-presenting the critical conversations (2-3 critical conversations to be documented per year)
Yes, this job is home-based but since relationships matter to us, we expect the person to go beyond the confines of e-mails. Expect occasional but short meetings or Skype calls. It is nice to share ideas and plan the next steps through meaningful conversations.
We encourage young people, 18 years old and above, to take risks and submit an expression of interest (EOI), including two samples of their works in English. Each sample must be 500-800 words long. Better if you can send published works. Otherwise we accept blog posts and school papers.
The successful content developer will receive PHP10,000 (USD200) nett salary by the end of each month for 5 months.
Isis International is a 45-year old Southern feminist communications organisation that has been based in the Philippines since 1991. Named after the Egyptian goddess of knowledge and creativity, the organisation was envisioned to facilitate access to information and spaces for conversations among women who would like to discuss their rights, entitlements, their bodies, roles, relationships, re-presentation and advanced these as policy issues.
