There are a number of technical, conceptual, and institutional challenges in monitoring and evaluating programme work and advocacy on women’s rights. Measuring progress and change is difficult because of the complexity and variety of the work involved in women’s rights projects and programmes, and their limited time-frames. In order to capture change, to promote learning within development organisations and the broader sector, and secure donor investment and policymaker commitment to women’s rights, it is vital to find creative ways to tackle these challenges. This article presents Womankind Worldwide’s and partners’ experiences in attempting to tackle some of these challenges by using Outcome Mapping-based approaches, in activities aiming to end violence against women and girls and promote women’s participation.
