Social movements can improve the well-being of men and women but are frequently analysed through a gender-neutral lens. Taking an international and cross-disciplinary perspective, this book examines the impact of social movements on political and material well-being, self-definition and the capabilities to be gendered political actors in transnational political spaces.
