This is a timely and fascinating book. The thirteen chapters, generally very well written and documented, critically examine historical and contemporary dimensions of ‘gender equality’ and its institutionalization from the 1960s through the 2010s. Institutionalizing Gender Equality enhances our understanding of global gender equality politics in the contexts of the Cold War, neoliberalism, nationalism, and religious fundamentalism. Highly recommended.

Bringing fresh eyes to both familiar and hitherto marginalized cases, this eclectic, multidisciplinary, and international collection provides valuable new insights into the institutionalization of gender equality policies and norms.
