Gender plays a major role in the organisation of society and the ways that individuals frame their own identities. While gender meanings vary from culture to culture, they continue to play a part in everything from the clothes we wear to how we communicate to our social roles. Gender also clearly informs patterns of educational and professional life. This issue of Forum aims to showcase various perspectives on what gender means in the context of internationalisation.
