Synopsis

How do NGOs overcome the suspicion of them as "Western" agents? How do they convince people that contrary to common perceptions, they are not there to "lead women astray from Islam"? And how, in the context of poverty, fundamentalism, and ethnic conflict, do NGOs convince people that women's issues merit attention in the first place? This book uncovers the skillful maneuvering that women's NGOs have to perform in order to survive a hostile environment. Drawing on interviews, participant observation, and published materials, this book analyzes the strategies used by Pakistani women's NGOs to advance women's rights in a conservative and antagonistic environment.
