At the dawn of Post-Revolution Sudan A Reflection on the dynamics of the women’s movement

In early 2019 Sudan had been gripped by months of political turmoil that climaxed with the army overthrowing long-time dictator Omar al-Bashir on April 11th. The protests began in December 2018 with civilians decrying the shortages and economic hardships that had become increasingly unbearable for the citizens of Sudan. This initial trigger let loose an accumulation of grievances that had been growing in the country for decades and culminated in one of the most remarkable protests in recent times. This intricate analysis of the women’s movement in Sudan highlights the role the Sudanese government has played in antagonizing the advancement of women’s rights, particularly in achieving an inclusive women’s agenda. It recognizes that it is high time that the Sudanese government and the ruling political institutions start creating a shift in their approach toward women’s rights and gender equality in Sudan.
