Abstract [en]

The paper examines the inclusion and exclusion of multiple inequalities in the policymaking process of gender-based violence policy in Sweden and in Britain. The paper asks what happens at the state/civil society interface when gender equality projects are confronted with other equality projects. Empirically, this is analysed by studying the ways in which women’s civil society organisations organise to gain a voice in, and impact on, gender-based violence policy. The comparison between the relatively social democratic Sweden and the more neoliberal Britain is particularly interesting in the context of the economic crisis, and where it has been argued that neoliberalism constitutes a threat to feminism. Preliminary results indicate that there are temporary strategic hierarchies of inequalities; women’s civil society organisations take turns in taking the lead and in backing up that lead in policymaking processes, indicating that there is a future for feminist, intersectional, coalitions
