Session #162: SSSP conference 2021 „Revolutionary Sociology“
Developing Feminist Leadership and Research on Movements and Indigenous Communities in the Global South
The Global South offers a rich context for understanding feminist leadership and feminist research. The fact that these areas are undertheorized contributes to the invisibility of Third World women in scholarship and in the politics of social change.
This session explores these areas from the experiences of women and indigenous communities in the Global South. How do women in the Global South deal with issues of gender in movement leadership? What problems do women encounter in creating and leading movement organizations in the context of state patriarchal authoritarianism? What lessons do their experiences teach about feminist leadership and feminist research?
