As part of the BRIDGE Cutting Edge programme on gender and social movements, we have produced two key publications.
This report provides an in-depth exploration of theory, case studies and key learning and routes to change drawn from the programme. The report is intended for a broad audience interested and/or involved in work around social movements and on women's rights and gender justice. It contains:
- A framework for understanding social justice movements and some of the debates, challenges and tensions they face.
- An introduction to women's and feminist movements, their visions and strategies, and the gains they have made over recent decades.
- An overview of responses by broader social justice movements to issues of women's rights and gender justice.
- An assessment of common challenges in building gender-just movements.
- A description of the core elements of gender-just movements.
- Some practical routes for nurturing social justice movements that challenge unjust gender power relations in all domains.
