This article explores different responses of women’s rights activists and organisations, in various regions of the world, to the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) agenda and processes. It gives a brief overview of the current state of play regarding the engagement of women’s movements with the MDGs. It then focuses on campaigning and advocacy, and the activism of grassroots movements; women’s critiques of the MDGs; and the different ways in which women are choosing to engage with the MDGs, to advance their own agenda.

This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis. For the full table of contents for this and previous issues of this journal, please visit the Gender and Development website.
