Fundamentalisms and Women's Rights

7th August 2014
Fundamentalisms are on the rise around the world with negative consequences for women’s rights. The latest Eldis gender guide update features a handful of excellent resources on this difficult and broad issue including: practical guidance on fundamentalisms for human rights activists; regional studies into Christian and Islamic fundamentalist discourses around sexual and reproductive health and rights; recommendations on broadening understanding and developing more nuanced approaches to tackling fundamentalisms; an overview of women’s rights in the Middle East and North Africa region.
