SPECIAL ISSUE: Gender, Nationalism, and Citizenship in Anti-Authoritarian Protests in Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine

This special issue focuses on gender dynamics in protest movements that occur in patriarchal, authoritarian and semi-authoritarian societies. Themes covered include the place of feminist and gender equality movements in democratically restricted environments, intersections between feminism and nationalism, the relationship between nationality and sexuality, the question of political agency of non-mainstream groups in the context of protest activity, and the dilemmas of conducting qualitative research while participating in a protest.
The journal features contributions by scholars, gender equality activists, and artists, and provides a wide-ranging discussion of recent and ongoing protest movements in Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.
