About 50.50

50.50 presents authoritative critical perspectives on social justice, gender, pluralism and equality.

It provides a 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 key women's human rights defenders working on the front line of resistance to the interlocking power-structures of patriarchy, fundamentalisms and other forms of social injustices.  

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.

In 2015 openDemocracy 50.50 was read by 451,422 people in 164 countries.

50.50 was founded by Jane Gabriel in 2007.
