Women's Movements in the Global Era: The Power of Local Feminisms
WomenÍs Movements in the Global Era is a path-breaking study of the genesis, growth, gains, and dilemmas of womenÍs movements in countries throughout the world. Its focus is on the Global South, where womenÍs 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 womenÍs 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.
