This dataset expands the original Women in Resistance (WiRe) dataset to provide a globally comprehensive data source on youth and LGBTQ+ participation in 209 maximalist nonviolent campaigns (those that pursue regime change, secession or newly autonomous states) from 1990-2020. The data is collected at the campaign level, and include several indicators for both youth and LGBTQ+ participation. The main measures are: Youth and LGBTQ+ frontline participation in movements; Youth and LGBTQ+ organizational presence; and Youth and LGBTQ+ presence in campaign leadership.
