Description: View the Table of Contents. Read the Preface. This important study is pitched to an academic community that remains highly patriarchal. Thus, it should make a valuable impact on this audience. --Choice: Highly reccomended. "Global Feminism is an extremely useful and important volume that systematically examines transnational women's movements as well as raises a number of important theoretical questions about global rights and transnational organizing." --Amrita Basu, editor of "The Challenge of Local Feminism: Women's Movements in Global Perspective" "Global Feminism offers a powerful analysis of the intersection of feminism and globalization, national women's movements and transnational politics, and activism and scholarship. Many of the authors reflect on their experiences as activists to produce a rich examination of feminist mobilization in the 21st century. Among the many strengths of this collection are the ways in which the authors make visible the contradictions of globalization for women's empowerment and evaluate feminist strategies for challenging male domination in its many forms. This book advances our understanding of how to increase social justice and democratic practice in movement organizations and feminist networks. The authors vividly demonstrate what feminism has to offer all movements for social justice." --Nancy A. Naples, author of "Feminism and Method: Ethnography, Discourse Analysis and Activist Research" Increasingly feminists around the world have successfully campaigned for recognition of women's full personhood and empowerment. Global Feminism explores the social and political developments that have energized this movement. Drawn froman international group of scholars and activists, the authors of these original essays assess both the opportunities that transnationalism has created and the tensions it has inadvertently fostered. By focusing on both the local and global struggles of today's feminist activists this important volume reveals much about women's changing rights, treatment and impact in the global world.
