We’ve created 31 Actions for Gender Justice to raise awareness, spark conversations and take action that transforms gender and power relations, and the structures, norms and values that underpin them. Every day for the month of March we will highlight an action that advances gender equity and justice for International Women’s Day (IWD).
This is by no means an exhaustive list! There’s so much more that we can do to advocate for political, economic and social changes.
What is Gender Justice and why does it matter?
March 1st Action 1. Getting on the same page.
The Global Fund for Women defines Gender Justice as “systemic redistribution of power, opportunities, and access for people of all genders through the dismantling of harmful structures including patriarchy, homophobia, and transphobia.”
To add to this definition, we’d like to highlight the importance of eliminating gender inequities with a decolonial and intersectional, anti-oppression feminist approach.
Gender Justice is a transformative concept that reorients and re-energizes the conversation about equality. More fundamentally, it points towards new ways of liberating our thinking about ourselves and each other.
