Seeing Beyond the State :Grassroots Women’s Perspectives on Corruption & Anti-Corruption

This publication reveals the findings of innovative and ground-breaking research, and brings this rich experience to both anti-corruption and gender equality and women’s empowerment discourses. Its recommendations inform our strategies to promote gendered dimensions of corruption in anticorruption interventions. Grassroots women’s perceptions of corruption go beyond the widely accepted definition and are described in terms of specific misuses of power, including sexual exploitation, illegal actions, and physical abuse. Moreover, grassroots women believe in organizing for empowerment to fight corruption through actions such as awareness raising and capacity building initiatives, generating an informed public debate, mobilizing public action, and monitoring service delivery .
