SuPWR is using a unique approach and methodology
When, how, and why do women’s power struggles succeed in retaining power and sustaining their gains against backlash? ‘Sustaining Power: Women’s Struggles against contemporary backlash in South Asia’ (SuPWR) is a five-year ESRC-funded research project that aims to respond to this question in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan.
Even as the forms, nature and sites of backlash are diversifying, women have not been passive. Instead, we see them coming together to resist and intensify their efforts to build intergenerational and intersectional movements.
