Abstract

This collection focuses on gender dynamics in protest movements that occur in patriarchal, authoritarian and semi-authoritarian societies. Themes covered include the place of feminist and gender equality movements in democratically restricted environments, intersections between feminism and nationalism, the relationship between nationality and sexuality, the question of political agency of non-mainstream groups in the context of protest activity, and the dilemmas of conducting qualitative research while participating in a protest.
