This annotated bibliography highlights selected texts on drivers of change in gender norms. It summarises some texts that outline recent thinking on social norms, concentrating on large-scale drivers of gender norm change, such as economic change, education, communications, legal change, social and political mobilisation and conflict, rather than on project-based experience. Overall, the texts demonstrate that social norms change when several drivers are working simultaneously.
