Anti-Colonial Resources for Gender Justice Advocates

The following is a community-curated list of free resources – books, articles, blog posts, podcasts, webinars, and more – that recognize gender-based violence as a tool of the colonial project, and aim to decolonize the gender justice movement. While it may not be possible to decolonize all institutions; we invite gender justice advocates at community organizations and post-secondary institutions to read and engage with these resources, and strengthen/implement action plans that challenge colonial ideologies and address violence against Indigenous women, girls, Two-Spirit, queer, and trans people.
