Mary Surridge

Brief Biography:

I have worked in support of women’s rights in UK since the 1980s and in various forms of gender and development since 1991.  Much of my early work was in women’s leadership and girls’ education but I have also worked in support of women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights and women and forestry, agriculture and climate change. Much of my recent work has been in conducting gender audits and evaluations and capacity strengthening of various agencies to help them better embed a gender perspective in their organisational structures and in the implementation of their programmes.
