Gender and the Sustainable Development Goals: Introduction

Gender and the Sustainable Development Goals: Introduction

In this issue of Oxfam's Gender & Development Journal, a range of prominent women's rights activists and advocates – many of whom have been directly involved in the creation of Agenda 2030 and the SDGs – offer their ‘first-cut’ analysis of them.

This article is the introduction to the journal providing an overview of the various perspectives found in the different chapters. Authors are differently positioned in this shared struggle for gender equality and women's rights. They are from women's organisations, research think-tanks, academia, and international agencies, including both the UN and international NGOs. They focus on the outcomes of the negotiation process, and the potential these offer to feminists working inside and outside official ‘development’ circles to progress gender equality and women's rights.
