This special edition of the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy, volume 5(2) entitled “Fighting Feminism: Organized Opposition to Women’s Rights”, is now available.
This issue presents an additional series of papers produced by scholars who participated in the workshop entitled “Men’s Groups: Challenging Feminism”. The workshop, organized by Susan B Boyd, Professor Emerita and then Chair in Feminist Legal Studies at the Allard School of Law, UBC, aimed to bring together feminist scholars from multiple disciplines and multiple national contexts to explore a source of resistance to feminism that has been largely overlooked in scholarly research: the growing number of nationally situated and globally linked organizations acting in the name of men’s rights and interests which contend that men are discriminated against in law, education and government funding, and that feminism is to blame for this.
This volume is a companion to the special issue of the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law volume 28(1). For more about that issue, see our recent post.
