Abstract

Copyright © 2016 by Emerald Group Publishing Limited. This collection contributes to a feminist scholarship that highlights a destabilising of established patterns of behaviour and gender relations. For the contributors, gender serves as an analytical framework and covers the experiences of women in different global settings related to education, political activism, corporeal violence, identity, sexuality, and poverty. The use of poetry and literature provides a powerful voice for women against exclusion and recognises their contribution to society. This collection hopes to be innovative in not only relating experiential evidence but also putting forward how women are able to challenge oppression through circumventing rules, roles, obligations and prejudice through a powerful agency.
