The digital revolution is transforming how human beings live, work, and relate to each another. Information and communications technologies (ICTs) have vast potential to communicate, gain access to information and services, and catalyse collective action for social justice.
But there is also the risk this revolution will fail to challenge stark inequalities in terms of who benefits and whose voice is heard. And technologies can be used by those who seek to challenge rights as well as realise them. In this issue, Gender & Development focuses on ICTs from the perspective of gender justice, and shares feminist experiences of using digital to advance women’s rights.

Fostering civic action and agency to ensure that citizens have voice and choice in relation to the food they eat is vital. However, food systems are complex and many actors help shape and influence them at local, national and international levels. By lobbying from the grassroots up, systemic changes to food systems can be made in order to address local and national challenges. This toolkit aims to provide essential guidance and ideas to advocacy professionals and civil society organisations wishing to mobilise and support low-income citizen groups to advocate for improved diets. It is ideal for civil society organisations that work with those most affected and neglected by food policy, low income consumers, producers, traders, processers and vendors – the people who form the backbone of informal food systems, but whose needs are rarely factored in by policy makers.
