Women in an Era of Anti-Elitism: Responding to the challenge of rising populism and its threat to gender inclusivity

There is a significant populist trend in which ‘elites’ are increasingly seen as being ‘out of touch’ with ‘ordinary people’. This is manifest across the globe but includes Asia. WIAC2019 considers the role and position of women in Asia in an era of anti-elitism. A range of pressing social, economic and legal challenges face the nation-state and regional stability due to rising populism in Asia. 

The Women in Asia Conference (WIAC) is affiliated with the Women’s Forum of the Asian Studies Association of Australia. WIAC2019 is the 12th Women in Asia Conference. It is supported by UNSW’s Institute for Global Development.
