Date published: January, 2020 (20 pages)
IFTF The Future of Gender Norms Report

If you had just six words to describe your vision of the future of gender, what would they be? This is the question that opened Institute for the Future’s Foresight-Insight-Action workshop where two dozen social inventors and thought leaders explored the future of gender norms and gender justice. The workshop sought to surface stories about the future that could help shape the Foundation and the field’s investment in new narratives and policy change. This memo is a summary of the future of gender norms that unfolded from these opening six-word stories.
