As a collaboration between Sonke Gender Justice, and the Centre for Human Rights and the Centre for Sexualities, AIDS and Gender, both of the University of Pretoria, the course will explore the foundations of a human-rights based approach to challenging gender inequality.
The course is aimed at practitioners from across the continent working in areas relating to gender, development, health and human rights. Although it has a strong theoretical emphasis, components of the course will focus on equipping participants with practical advocacy skills for tackling gender inequality. This will be done through a mix of didactic and experiential work.
The course will interrogate a spectrum of approaches to understanding gender justice and injustice, including feminism, patriarchy, and intersectionality, and explores the role of men and boys in achieving gender equality. It will also examine the impact of culture, tradition and religion on gender norms and inequality, reflect on the gendered nature of violence and economic inequality; and critically reflect on some of the linkages between gender, health and human rights, such as sexual and reproductive health and rights, and issues facing LGBTI, sexual minorities and sex workers.
