Advancing Transformation: Considering Continuums in Gender Inequalities

Drawing from the UN Commission on the Status of Women’s theme for 2021 on ‘Women' full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls’, this talk focuses on pushing us to think more about what working towards gender equality in our institutions means.

The challenges that present by a focus on just adding women to organisations or promoting their leadership without both recognition of, as well as addressing, the broader context to inequalities will be outlined. The idea that there are connections in the ways that women experience inequalities across their public and private lives will be discussed.
