Studying Women’s Sexuality with Participatory Research

In her presentation, Brenda Rodríguez will discuss the feminist participatory approach in her study of women’s sexuality. Her research explores how women understand and experience their sexuality with a special focus on the colonial legacies that continue to shape sexual subjectivities until this day and the ways in which these are being resisted.

‘Transformative Social Protection in Ethiopia’  OR   ‘Bundling and Beyond: Social Protection in Ethiopia’
