The Feminist Issues in Evaluation is a Thematic Interest Group (TIG) in the American Evaluation Association (AEA). Since being officially approved in 1997, it has played a role in broadening the discussions within the AEA to include range of related feminist, gender, human rights, social justice, inclusion, and international perspectives.
