Short Abstract:

The panel brings together diverse examples of female organising in Malawi, Ghana and Pakistan to explore what can be learned from different fights for gender justice.

Long Abstract

How are women organising? What can we learn from different fights for gender justice? In what ways are women’s lives shaped by policies and legislation? This panel brings together three case studies examining these questions. The first paper on the role of women leaders as agents of change, looks at the question of political violence against women in Malawi. The second explores the way women organise in Ghana’s informal quarrying sector. The third paper examines the role of digital spaces in changing women’s access to justice against violence in Pakistan.
