The series ‘Women on the Move’ encompasses intersectional experiences of women in the face of gender and colonial power imbalances, as well as the social significance of their various roles in the private and public spheres of life. By shedding light on the relevance of female leadership vis-a-vis persisting structural biases derived from both patriarchal and racist social constructions, a multidisciplinary group of researchers will highlight women’s contribution to societies in key historical periods and national contexts.
