This truly global book helps site West, East, North and South similarities and differences between women’s activism on behalf of equality, liberation, and more human conditions. Fourteen reprinted essays appear within chapters called “Nation-building,” “Sources of Activism,” Women’s Liberation,” and “New Waves in the 1980s and 1990s.” The collection offers perspectives from 19th and 20th century Egypt, Vietnam, South Africa, Brazil, Kenya, Korea, Britain, Japan, Russia, Iran, Germany and the United States. Of notable interest are discussions of contemporary international movements dealing with women’s human rights, Amnesty International, the “NGO-ization” of feminism, and reflections on the UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. A must resource for world and feminist historians.
