This is an account of the experience of ZWRCN in attempting to establish a feminist organisational culture, analysing the successes, and describing the pitfalls encountered. In order to create such an organisational culture, a shared vision is essential. The author raises critical issues for organisations wishing to question the ways of working of traditional bureaucracies. How can a culture based on feminist principles maintain a sense of professionalism, both within and outside the organisation?
