Feminist organizational forms in the implementation of public policies

Silvia Cristina Caicedo-Muñoz About the author


This article contributes to the study of the implementation of public policies based on the organizational studies associated with gender studies, by analysing how non-governmental development organizations formed by women organize themselves to implement public policies based on tensions, deliberative practices and conflict.

The multiple case study based on semi-structured interviews allows to affirm that women's organizations establish "feminist organizational forms", therefore, they are not organizationally dissonant, they do not adapt the ideal bureaucratic type, they are not sexualized, not do they reproduce gender differences.
