Abstract and Keywords

This article studies gender movements. The discussion focuses on social movements and not entirely on feminism or women’s movements, looking at the ways that gendered identities help shape movements, along with the ways that movements function in gendered environments. Next, it identifies and differentiates antifeminist, nonfeminist, and feminist movements, before studying the role of gender in each. The article also lists a wide range of movements, from racist contestations to labor and peace movements, and considers the participation of women in antifeminist movements.

Keywords: gender movements, social movements, gendered identities, gendered environments, antifeminist movements, nonfeminist movements, feminist movements
