9781780321585: The Remaking of Social Contracts: Global Feminists in the Twenty-First Century

Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) argues that social contracts must be recreated if they are to fulfil the promise of human rights. In The Remaking of Social Contracts, leading thinkers and activists address a wide range of concerns - global economic governance, militarism, ecological tipping points, the nation state, movement-building, sexuality and reproduction, and religious fundamentalism. These themes are of wide-ranging importance for the survival and well-being of us all, and reflect the many dimensions and inter-connectedness of our lives. Using feminist lenses, the book puts forward a holistic and radical understanding of the synergies, tensions and contradictions between social movements and global, regional and local power structures and processes, and it points to other alternatives and possibilities for this fierce new world.

About the Author:

Gita Sen is DAWN's research coordinator on the Political Economy of Globalisation, and a professor of public policy at the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore. She has been for many years a feminist analyst, activist and advocate on globalisation, and on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Well known as the author of many publications on these subjects and on gender and development more generally, she has also been a key advocate in global and regional arenas linked to both the International Conference on Population and Development and the Fourth World Conference on Women. She is on many national and international committees and is co-coordinator of the knowledge network on Women and Gender Equity for the WHO's Independent Commission on the Social Determinants of Health. One of the her best known books is the first DAWN boo k, Development, Crises, and Alternative Visions: Third World Women's Perspectives.

Review:

'The Remaking of Social Contracts presents a head-on challenge to neoliberalism's many myths. This collection offers important insights into contemporary global complexities without losing sight of or minimizing important historical antecedents. Sen and Durano bring together a stellar array of interdisciplinary and intergenerational activists, academics and advocates. This is certain to be a key text for understanding why development debates are still at the heart of issues of justice, rights and advocacy.' Michelle V. Rowley, University of Maryland 'In the last decade of the twentieth century, social movements debated whether their goals should include "equity" or "equality" for women. This book offers a different perspective. In a world which is becoming more and more unequal both within countries and between them, the answer is "neither", and a new social contract should be based instead on justice. In this foundational book, DAWN spells out gender justice not just as another item on the wish list of social movements but as the basis of a new, indispensable social contract.' Roberto Bissio, coordinator of Social Watch 'Here are the tools we've been waiting for. This cutting-edge collection addresses the major dilemmas of our times to provide readers with a broad spectrum of evidence-based analysis. The contributors, leading public intellectuals from across the globe, demystify the ideological and material trappings of imperialism. Inspirational and essential reading for the twenty-first century.' Amina Mama, professor of women and gender studies, University of California, Davis, and founding editor of Feminist Africa
