Gender Justice



Gender justice is a response to gender discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, and patriarchy. It calls for dismantling of explicit and implicit practices created and supported by people of privilege, power, and wealth that favor and prioritize one gender (usually cisgender men) above and at the exclusion of others. At the same time, gender justice focuses on the need for equal access to social spaces, fair treatment, respect, and safety among all genders. Gender justice goes hand in hand with racial justice, environmental justice, and immigration justice as focused movements promoting human rights. A movement-led approach shifts the power and resources to communities and leaders most impacted by the injustice.
