Description: Womenrs"s Movements in the Global Erais a path-breaking study of the genesis, growth, gains, and dilemmas of womenrs"s movements in countries throughout the world. Its focus is on the Global South, where womenrs"s 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.
