Either individually or collectively, women from different social backgrounds address various concerns through, among other ways, forming organizations to mobilize resources and pursue gendered interests on their own behalf. This paper explores configurations of forms of womencentered organizations (WCOs)-mekgatlho ya Basadi and also pay attention to organizational links that exist among various organizational forms in contemporary Botswana. Relationships among the various forms underscore differential access to power and resources.
