Resource description

As women take on the brunt of the coalition government’s spending cuts, activist groups from all over the country are campaigning for gender justice through collective actions such as street protests, online media campaigns and community support groups. Mary Evans argues that we need to extend models of female dissent, and to do this we may need to extend our readings of the political to the fictional.
