Gender relations are global. They are key to understanding how the world works today. War, globalisation, sexuality, migration, representation, employment, media, history - all of these are gendered. If you are interested in global power relations, a gender analysis is essential. But what is GENDER? Gender can mean men and women, and the relationship between them. But it is also about masculinity and femininity, divisions of labour, self-presentation, public and private spheres, access to institutions and the organisation of family life. It can be understood as static or in flux, oppressive or a source of pleasure. From our global perspective, gender always intersects with other categories of analysis such as race, ethnicity, class and sexuality. And because gender relations work in all spheres of life, interdisciplinarity is key to their analysis and transformation.
