Nikki van der Gaag Keynote Lecture (prerecorded)
Can the pandemic reframe patriarchy? A feminist take on power and political masculinities

This talk will interrogate the concept of political masculinities from a feminist perspective. It will outline the views and perspectives of feminists from different eras and locations, and then move to contemporary times to look at how backlash against gender equality and women’s rights is playing out in the political arena in a number of countries. It will touch on the pandemic, and how it has reinforced patriarchal notions of power. And finally, it will look at how we might use the idea that masculinities are inherently political to challenge current patriarchal orthodoxies in order to build a more gender equal world.

Nikki van der Gaag is independent gender consultant and Senior Fellow Promundo. She is former Director of Gender Justice and Women’s Rights, Oxfam UK.
