Steps Towards Development (Steps) is a national NGO working since 1993 with the mandate of the promotion and protection of gender equality, human rights and good governance. Steps strives to create a better society through eliminating all discriminations between women and men that exist in policy, law, institution, society and culture. Through this process, Steps links field experience and learning with policy level. Steps works with a gender equality and right based approach. With around three decades of persistent efforts in strengthening the women’s rights movement in the country, Steps has earned Steps recognition of a leading gender and rights-based organization in Bangladesh. Steps wants to gradually replicate its mission-vision and stories of success in other parts of Bangladesh and thus establish human rights, especially women human rights as well as equality and equity for all.
