Gender and Queer Perspectives on Brexit ‎

A new book discussing the gender and queer dimensions of Brexit has been published. 

'Gender and Queer Perspectives on Brexit ‎' was co-edited by Law academics and members of the Sussex European Institute; Prof Nuno Ferreira, Dr Moira Dustin and Prof Sue Millns

The book also contains a chapter authored by Dr Carmelo Danisi, Dr Moira DustinProf Nuno Ferreira and on the potential impact of Brexit on gender and sexual minorities.

The book examines the opportunities and challenges, rights and wrongs, and prospects and risks of Brexit from the perspectives of gender and sexuality. While much has been written about Brexit from legal, political, social and economic perspectives, there has been little analysis of the effects of Brexit on women and gender/sexual minorities who have historically been marginalised and whose voices have been less audible in political debates – both nationally and at the European level. The collection explores how Brexit might change the equality, human rights and social justice landscape, but from the viewpoint of women and gender/sexual minorities. The contributions gathered in it demonstrate the variety of ways that Brexit will make a difference to the lives of women and individuals marginalised because of gender or sexual identity.
