9781849664899: Working the Spaces of Power: Activism, Neoliberalism and Gendered Labour

This book highlights the way in which contemporary forms of governance, policy and politics have been reframed by women "working the spaces of power". It shows how links between activism and work have generated innovations that have since become "common sense" forms of policy and practice.

Janet Newman draws on interviews with a wide variety of women in positions of power, some at the highest levels of government, some who have led major voluntary bodies, others who are entrepreneurs, philanthropoists, community activists and campaigners. All of their work has been informed by a range of social movements and activist commitments. Newman uses these interviews to interrogate, develop and challenge existing approaches to understanding social and political change.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book highlights the way in which contemporary forms of governance, policy and politics have been reframed by women working the spaces of power . It shows how they took activist commitments into their working lives, in the process negotiating the terrain of neoliberal governance. Their work generated new political movements, community initiatives, public policies, organizational logics and forms of knowledge work . Newman draws on over 50 interviews with women from four generations to interrogate, develop and challenge existing approaches to understanding social and political change. In a postscript she traces ways in which the analysis might speak to the present and offer resources for contemporary politics and practice. Bookseller Inventory # AA79781849664899
