            Abstract

            In 2008 a set of principles for systemic intervention was published. They originated from a comparative study of cultural ecofeminist and critical systems thinking texts. The feminist-systems thinking principles are:

            • Adopt a gender sensitive approach

            • Value voices from the margins

            • Incorporate the environment within research

            • Select appropriate method/ologies

            • Undertake research that promotes plurally desirable and sustainable social change

            The principles have been surpassed due to the work done with them over the last decade. This article reviews the FST principles and the emergence of the ‘GEMs’ framework: the Gender equality, Environments and Marginalised voices framework. While the GEMs remains true to its ecofeminist and systemic thinking intents, it has broader application across a range of socio-economic and socio-ecological intersecting issues. The article concludes with some current applications of the GEMs working from the global scale with the UN’s 2030 Agenda to the operating table in a contemporary medical hospital setting.
