The other primary method of achieving feminist agency is for women to actively engage with the regulatory bodies in their society on a group basis. This involves negotiating with lawmakers and regulators in an effort to ensure that the laws, which mandate equal opportunities, are designed and developed in such a way as to improve gender outcomes across society as a whole, rather than just in limited areas (Page, 2011). This often involves feminist groups focusing on human resource development, education and professional membership for women, helping to address gaps, which can later become significant barriers to women's achievement in the workplace (Metcalfe, 2011). This approach has been highly successful in providing women with more information and empowering them to understand their rights and the gendered forces, which can hinder these rights, thus allowing more effective strategies to achieve equality of opportunities and employment (Page, 2011). However, it relies on the existence of supporting institutions and organisations, which will allow women to challenge embedded stereotypes and promote themselves, rather than looking to maintain existing conceptualisations of gender neutrality regardless of the negative implications for true equality.
