  • How has the privatisation and commercialisation of public services impacted women’s rights?

  • Why and how do we need to re-organise, own, manage and fund public services to advance gender justice?

  • Which are the alternatives to privatisation and commercialisation proposed by feminist social movements, activists, and grassroots women’s rights organisations?
