Why the Creation of a Better World is Premised on Achieving Gender Equity and on Celebrating Multiple Gender Diversities

by Ivana Milojević

ABSTRACT

This article investigates changes in global gender regimes over the last hundred years and proposes that these regimes will further change. Drawing on contemporary theoretical understandings of gender within gender studies the article extrapolates some current developments into the future. A number of scenarios for gender futures are discussed. The article concludes with the assertion that the development of a better world throughout the 21st century is directly premised on re-making of traditional, and patriarchal gender identities and on creation of alternative gender identities based on distinctively different (gender partnership and equity) worldview.
