Abstract:The collection of articles in this issue analyses women's mobilisations - whether feminist or not, and whether women-related or not - as a gendered social phenomenon. That is to say that they focus on one of the two categories of sexes - the women - but look at gender relations as a system. Thus, they explore how gender inequalities and gender relations shape female grievances and protest, and, in turn, how mobilisation affects (gender) power relations. Contributions: Bridging social divides: leadership and the making of an alliance for women's land-use rights in Morocco (Yasmine Berriane); (De-)Politicising women's collective action: international actors and land inheritance in post-war Burundi (Marie Saiget); Women's mobilisation for legislative political representation in Africa (Aili Mari Tripp); Women's activism around gender-based violence in South Africa: recognition, redistribution and representation (Amanda Gouws); Senegalese mothers 'fight clandestine migration': an intersectional perspective on activism and apathy among parents and spouses left behind (Emmanuelle Bouilly); Women's protests: gender, imprisonment and resistance in South Africa (Pollsmoor Prison, 1970s-90s); (Natacha Filippi); 'I acted like a man': exploring female ex-insurgents' narratives on Nigeria's oil insurgency (Temitope Oriola).
