Feminism and the women's movement in Pakistan

Author: Rubina Saigol

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Islamabad, 2016, pp. 51

Explores the divisions in the feminist movement in Pakistan and how feminists see or silence the intersections between sexuality, religion, race and class in the struggle for equality in Pakistan. It contextualises the analysis within the legacies of colonial relations, nationalist reformation, development policies and neoliberal economies, including new forms of militarism introduced with the global war on terror, and the transformations of the political space across Pakistan’s political history.
