Departing from professionalization explanations, this chapter demonstrates how the level of inclusiveness of the political settlement in each case shaped the impact of donor assistance on the women’s sectors. The chapter examines how the women’s sector was reconstituted in each case, focusing on the relationships that transpired with grassroots constituencies, as well as between the different tendencies of the women’s sectors. It also assesses the women sector’s engagement with legislative and local bodies of government in each case. It concludes with illustrations of donor-funded programs in each case.

Keywords:   Women’s sectors, Women’s political participation, Women’s activism, Professionalized NGOs, Grassroots constituencies, Gender/Women’s empowerment, Salvadoran women’s movement, Palestinian women’s movement, Democracy promotion, Civil society development
