Of all the great social movements of the twentieth century, it is the women's movement that looks set to continue to shape the course of social progress over the next generation. This overview of the international women's movement by the well-known feminist activist Peggy Antrobus asks where are women now--particularly in the Third World--in the struggle against gender inequality? What are the issues--from poverty to sexual and reproductive health to the environment--that they face in different parts of the world? What challenges confront the women's movement and what strategies are needed? Rooted in the author's long experience in seeing these movements in a changing national and global context over the past decades, this intervention will prove an invaluable aid to reflection and action for the next generation of women as they carry through the unfinished business of women's emancipation.

Review:

'This is a must read for all activists, policy makers and scholars who care about the future of equity and justice in the world.' Charlotte Bunch, Rutgers University 'A reflection on the international women's movement by one of its most important leaders is both timely and stimulating.' Noeleen Heyzer, UNIFEM 'A fascinating book where the researcher and the activist come together to tell the history of a revolutionary movement that changed the way we think about gender and sexuality, social justice and human rights, the political economy and power.' Carmen Barroso, Western Hemisphere Region 'This is a breath-taking attempt at documenting the challenges and triumphs of the Global Women's Movement over the past 30 years, and there are few women in this movement more qualified than Peggy Antrobus to take this on.' Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi, Women's Rights in Development

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 'In The Global Women's Movement, Antrobus gives us rich historical background, insightful personal reflection, and a keen analysis of the challenges that lie ahead for women's global organizing. This is a must read for all activists, policy makers and scholars who care about the future of equity and justice in the world.' Charlotte Bunch, Rutgers University 'This reflection on the international women's movement by one of its most important leaders is both timely and stimulating. Locating its origins in the quest for broader social justice, Peggy Antrobus examines this movement over three decades. She makes the case that if our movement is to continue to find solutions to the problems of human security and well-being, we must deal as seriously with issues of race and class as we do with patriarchy.' Noeleen Heyzer, UNIFEM 'This is a fascinating book where the researcher and the activist come together to tell the history of a revolutionary movement that changed the way we think about gender and sexuality, social justice and human rights, the political economy and power. The author has the authority of someone who was an active participant in many major events of that history.'Carmen Barroso, Western Hemisphere Region 'This is a breath-taking attempt at documenting the challenges and triumphs of the Global Women's Movement over the past 30 years, and there are few women in this movement more qualified than Peggy Antrobus to take this on. Peggy brings her immense wealth of experience as a feminist activist, scholar, strategist, thinker and mentor to bear on this book, which is a great resource for women's rights activists everywhere.' Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi, Women's Rights in Development. Seller Inventory # BTE9781842770177
