  • Developing initiatives, programs, and projects that contribute to bettering women’s living conditions in human settlements. 

  • Strengthening women’s leadership, demands, and dialogue with local governments to promote their citizenship and drive change in their living conditions. 

  • Awareness raising, training, and cooperative work with civil society organizations and municipal employees and politicians to influence public policies, programs, and projects in the field of habitat and territory from a gender-equity perspective.

  • Disseminate and exchange knowledge and experiences in the field of habitat from a gender perspective, through publications, web sites, workshops and seminars, and participation in international events and forums. 

  • Coordinate actions with other women’s networks and feminist networks in Latin America and other continents with the goal of influencing governments’ agendas and promoting the fulfillment of their international commitments related to equal opportunity policies for women.

REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL ARTICULATIONS

The Network participates in spaces of regional and international articulation, such as the Huairou Commission, a network of networks whose objective is strengthening women’s organizations to promote sustainable communities and uniting forces for the fulfillment of governments’ commitments to women. The Network also forms part of the Marcosur Feminist Articulation, a space made up of diverse regional networks that proposes consolidating a line of thinking to potentiate women’s political participation in processes of regional integration and in defense of their rights. The Women and Habitat Network also participates in regional and international campaigns that push for the fulfillment of social, economic, and cultural rights of all citizens, with particular attention to women’s as yet unmet rights.
