Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Womens Movements in the Global Era is a path-breaking study of the genesis, growth, gains, and dilemmas of womens movements in countries throughout the world. Its focus is on the Global South, where womens movements have engaged in complex negotiations with national and international forces. It challenges widely held assumptions about the Western origins and character of local feminisms. All the authors locate womens movements within the terrain from which they emerged by exploring their relationships with the state, civil society, and other social movements. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the global scope and implications of feminism.
