Whose Rights, Which Rights? - Cover Image
Debates about abortion rights and the marriage for all or the hostility towards feminists and gender studies are making it undeniable – women’s and gender rights have increasingly been called into question and attacked. The podcast “Whose Rights, Which Rights?” takes up these conflicts over gender, equality and the formulation and implementation of legal claims. In each episode we take a closer look at one aspect of the topic, such as fundamentalist religion, the “care crisis” or growing right-wing populism. The podcast is based on a cooperation between the Hertz 87.9 campus radio and the research group “Global Contestations of Women’s and Gender Rights” at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) at the University of Bielefeld, where 20 scientists from different disciplines deal with this topic. Based on the current state of the debate, we will explore the respective research area of ​​the fellows in each episode and ask more precisely how and why women’s and gender rights are being attacked.
