Patriarchy, politics and women’s activism in post-revolution Sudan

This briefing provides a concise update on the challenges and opportunities for women activists trying to influence the political transition in Sudan. While Sudanese women were at the forefront of the popular uprising under the banner “freedom, peace and justice” that started in December 2018 and eventually led to the ousting of President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019, they were marginally represented in the negotiations that followed. In the process of consolidating a transitional government, women have been sidelined but continue to demand their rightful inclusion into political decision-making bodies.
