Silences in the struggle for gender equality in the global South

Silences in the struggle for gender equality in the global South

This stream invites papers that examine the relationship between silence and the gender equality agenda. Papers could explore the meanings that people give to silence and how it is manifested in men and women’s negotiation of gender relations in their daily lives; silences in the scholarships, looking at on-going or neglected challenges to gender equality and silences in implementation, looking at how formal gender empowerment policies work in practice, particularly at the household level. In addition, we encourage contributions that explore the impact of silence on gender relationships and the potential for social conflicts or cohesion.
