Transformations: feminist pathways to global change : an analytical anthology
Activists are embedding feminism in many movements for global change, igniting the transnational power of feminism. The editors of this analytic anthology argue that egalitarian, democratic, gender/sexuality, work and trade, environmental, and peace movements interconnect and exhibit strong a feminist core. Diverse feminist movements now initiate structural reforms and invent alternative social relations. As they build foundations that may lead to new societies, intertwined movements and practical projects enhance the possibilities for sustained change. This book's synthetic approach and its practical cases show readers--students, activists, scholars, and general readers alike--that feminist knowledge and participatory action have become key elements in local to global change. Within the contemporary, global-historical context, the editors redefine and integrate theories. They explore knowledge that relates to feminist, intersectional, world-system and other frameworks. Each chapter provides the editors' original analysis of a feminist-driven movement, literature reviews (with examples in side-bars), and related anthology selections that have been written by noted multicultural scholars and activists who work in diverse urban and rural areas of the world.
