Gender & Power Relations Annotated Bibliography

SHIFT Annotated Bibliography



This publication is part of the gender and power-relations package which encompasses a lot of complex issues, both in society and more specifically in the cultural sector, hence the common decision to focus on sexual harassment in the culture and creative sectors. The global movement of #METOO, which started in 2017, increased awareness and empowered employees and professionals across the globe to report sexual harassment and other inequalities in the workplace. #METOO brought to the surface the vulnerability and a lack of effective protection mechanisms of anyone facing power abuse, regardless of age, class and gender.


A large number of resources exist on the issue even if they can be unequal in terms of contents, accessibility and number depending on the covered countries, sub-sectors and languages in focus.
This annotated bibliography does not claim to be fully comprehensive on the subject but tries to introduce on specific entries (policies, campaigns, codes of conduct etc.) accessible online resources that can help end-users to find documents, tools, inspiration, etc. and to design further their own ways to act on the subject depending on their needs and the context they are evolving.  The focus is mostly on Europe with a few international references.
