Voices of the Margins

"Voices of the Margins: Realising ‘Freedom - Peace – Justice’ and Structural Empowerment for Multi-Marginalised Women in Sudan."

Over 50 years of dictatorships and war, following many decades of colonialism, established a system of discrimination in Sudanese society that led to multi-marginalisation of different groups of people. The multitudinous forms of discrimination and marginalisation do not only run along the regional divides between the centre and the margins, and between so-called “African” and “Arab” ethnic groups. Many women in particular face multiple intersecting forms of marginalisation and discrimination, most often along the lines of gender, ethnicity and racist categories, class, as well as war-related dynamics. The Revolution of 2019 created potentials for lasting change. This change was brought about by the Sudanese people, including people from the margins.
