Sex Situationism: A Feminist Diagnosis of the Beijing Platform 25 Years Later

The article aims to perform a feminist analysis of the 25 years of the Beijing Action Platform through a discussion of the ambiguities of the terms ‘gender’ and mainstreaming as introduced in the Platform, reflecting on the ramifications and consequences of their use in the intersection with increasingly consolidated neoliberal policies in recent decades. At issue is the recognition of the multiple issues related to multiculturalism underlying the liberal gender model and the proposal of ways of conceiving a mainstreaming closer to the diverse experiences and policies specifically directed at the needs of groups with particular needs. Reflecting more broadly on women’s rights, the article ends by arguing that the right to information should also encompass a right to literacy.
