Undressing Patriarchy: Redressing Inequalities

From 9–12 September a diverse group of activists, academics and practitioners came together at the Imperial Hotel in Brighton (UK) aroundthe theme of patriarchy. Over four days they: shared personal reflections
about the impact that patriarchy has had on their own lives; swapped theory; watched films, sang and danced  together; discussed practical interventions for challenging harmful social norms and building new ways of thinking and acting; talked on the move during a ‘walkshop’ on the sunny Sussex coast; and agreed a future agenda for change.

The objectives of the meeting were:

  • •To make visible assumptions, realities and new expressions of shifting patriarchal power structures;
  • To reveal key gendered pathways and connections between different forms and systems of power, and advance thinking about patriarchy in relation to intersecting structures of power;
  • To document dialogues and communicate new thinking on patriarchy and gender justice to a broader audience in social science, gender and development;
  • To develop a roadmap for future directions and collaborations addressing patriarchal inequity.
