Resisting the Anti-Gender Campaigns

Room Urvashi Vaid

The anti-gender movement is a highly organised and well-financed movement that acts transnationally in deteriorating women’s rights, LGBTIQ rights and civil society. They use narratives embedded in the language of concerned citizens for the future, the children, and the nation that are much more appealing to the general public than the language of human rights that we use, which often is relatively abstract. During this session, we will talk and work on topics related to how to unite, how the prevent and how to work against the anti-gender backlash.
