About this book

This collection 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.

Reviews

“Dustin, Ferreira and Millns have pulled together a fascinating collection of works from an impressive range of scholars and activists. The importance of the book is not only that it highlights different perspectives on Brexit, but that these perspectives are coming from outside the usual areas of concern over Brexit.” (Professor Paul James Cardwell, Strathclyde University, UK)

“In the midst of extensive debate on Brexit, this collection broadens the conversation and it truly enriches our understanding. It shines genuinely new light on the potential ramifications for women and sexual and gender minorities. This book provides a sophisticated and reflective analysis of the longer-term consequences that can be expected to flow from Brexit.” (Professor Mark Bell, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland)

“While politicians and the media focus on trade and security, leaving the EU will have serious consequences for different intersectionally marginalised groups in the UK. The ramifications, all too often overlooked, for the most vulnerable in our society are discussed in depth in this thoughtful collection.” (Jean Lambert, Green MEP for London, UK)
