Gender justice and internationalism, past and present
Monday 17 May 2021, 5.00pm to 6.00pm BST
It has long been recognised that gender justice is an international issue. Feminist concerns, campaigning and networks have sometimes been mobilised against nationalist and anti-colonial movements, but have also been enrolled into these struggles. Has there been ‘one feminism’ or are there ‘many’? Have women’s rights in one part of the world been secured at the expense of those in other parts? Have intersectional perspectives resolved these tensions, or just created new ones? What does the study of gender bring to that of statecraft? In this panel, we bring together a scholar and a practitioner to reflect on the transnational and geopolitical impact of the ‘women’s movement’, past and present.
