The Gendered Politics of Crises and De-Democratization: Opposition to Gender Equality (Studies in European Political Science) (Hardcover)
When opposition to gender+ equality and LGBTQIA+ policies is growing both in Europe and around the world, with increasing attacks on gender and sexuality norms and violations of women's and minority groups' rights, it is crucial to further improve the feminist scholarly understanding of opposition to gender equality in times of de-democratization. The Gendered Politics of Crises and De-Democratization: Opposition to Gender Equality seeks to broaden the current scope of literature on opposition to gender equality in democracy, laws, politics, and policymaking procedures. This book focuses on nine case studies of opposition to gender+ equality politics and policies at the United Nations' (UN) multilateral level, the European Union's (EU) supranational level, national, and local levels. With its strong interdisciplinary and original focus on bringing together distinct scholarships as well as the variety of topics covered-from employment through sexual and reproductive health rights to gender-based violence-, this book is beneficial not only for gender studies students and scholars but also for feminist activists, political and policy actors, and anyone who is interested in achieving social justice.
