Abstract

Jordanian society stands at a crossroads. Steps to improve the status of women in Jordan, like the removal of Article 308, have had resounding success. At the same time, Jordan still contends with conservative discourse surrounding the proper place of women in society. Women’s rights organizations in Jordan have historically shared strong ties to the Jordanian government as well as international donors. The connection between women’s organizations, international donors, and the Jordanian government remains today. However, women’s organization possess a level of autonomy that allows them to tailor their messaging to connect with members of Jordanian society, and create organizational partnerships that successfully create political, social, and ideological change in Jordan.
