dc.descriptionThis article explores how women’s movements in China, India, and Indonesia have mobilised to influence processes of legal reform on violence against women and girls (VAWG). Legal change is a complex and iterative process, in which both state and non-state actors negotiate and bargain over the content of law in the ‘policy space’, bringing different interests and needs to bear. The three countries featured here differ in many ways, including population size, political system (including varying levels and degrees of democratisation and decentralisation, and regional and local autonomy), and diversity in the population, including ethnicities and religions. A comparative study such as this offers important potential for understanding policy change on VAWG, the role of women’s movements in this, and the obstacles to change. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
