Our Work

The Gender Security Project works at the intersection of gender, security, justice, and peace through research, reportage, and documentation. Operating from The Global South, the initiative aims at centering voices, scholarship, research, and reportage from the global south within the contexts of the WPS Agenda and Feminist Foreign Policy.   

“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety in the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centres, women’s refuges, reforms in the law. If someone says, ‘Oh, I’m not a feminist’, I ask, ‘Why? What’s your problem?”

- Dale Spender
