The phrase “gender justice” refers to the full equality and equity between women and men in all spheres of life. It requires that women jointly, and on an equal basis with men, define and shape the policies, structures and decisions that affect their lives and society as a whole. Achieving gender justice requires us to redistribute power, resources, and access to the benefit of people of all genders. By necessity, this redistribution is intersectional and centers the experiences and needs of those who have been most profoundly affected by oppressive systems.

The fight for sexual freedom is a fight against such oppressive systems and a fight for the human rights of people of all genders.

Gender justice connects with a number of human rights, including the right to equality and non-discrimination, the right to privacy, the right to health, and the rights to freedom of opinion and expression.
