When working in environments where cultural or religious opposition to women's empowerment is comparatively strong, do donors and international agencies (e.g., UN Women, ILO, UNDP) adopt a more conservative tack or charge ahead? In either case, do they run into government opposition and how is this manifested? Are they able to stay below the radar and achieve progress on the ground or, conversely, do they purposely adopt a proactive stance as a way to affect government perceptions of gender and the value of women's empowerment? Do they adopt coping strategies such as focusing on less controversial issues, such as education and employment or selecting politically powerful CSOs as partners?
