50.50 presents authoritative critical perspectives on social justice, gender, pluralism and equality in order to provide engaging, thoughtful and relevant tools to anyone seeking to understand pressing contemporary issues.
It provides a welcoming and thoughtful platform for debate and analysis, embracing a plurality of voices from scholars to activists and citizens.
International in breadth whilst sensitive to local particularities and heritages, 50.50 gives voice to those working on the front line of resistance to the interlocking power-structures of patriarchy, fundamentalisms and other forms of social injustices.
It promotes the work and critical perspectives of key women’s rights defenders from grassroots women’s organisations to scholarly theorists such as the work of Feminist Africa journal, who work to interrogate and dismantle patriarchy.
Through a variety of styles, from philosophical analysis to investigative journalism, 50.50 maps how patriarchy and social injustices are built into the daily fabric of our lives.
From violence against women to the effects of globalisation to the changing form of fundamentalisms, it gives voice to those who resist dominant paradigms, challenging lazy media dichotomies and outmoded thinking, providing vigorous, relevant and thoughtful engagement with the most pressing contemporary issues of our time.
