Announcing The Fourth Wave : a New Online Forum on AIDS and GenderIn the third decade of the HIV and AIDS epidemic, women and particularly young women and girls have become a growing proportion of those affected and infected.
The SSRC, UNESCO and UNIFEM announce the launch of a new online forum, the "Fourth Wave": Violence, Gender, Culture & HIV in the 21st Century, to discuss the gendered structural inequalities that have a direct bearing on women's and girls' vulnerability to HIV.
A moderated online discussion will allow practitioners, policy makers and scholars to debate why the response to the epidemic is failing women. The online forum will precede the forthcoming Fourth Wave book, chapters of which are posted on the website.
