9781856493178: Subversive Women: Women's Movements in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean

This important anthology of feminist writing brilliantly demonstrates the complexity and diversity of women's movements and organisations worldwide. The book opens with an analysis of women's history as subversion and the methodological aspects of feminist research projects. Individual contributors look at the experience of their own countries and explore 'feminism' as it is defined in the North and the South.

Throughout, the book gives a distinct historical perspective on women's organising. It shows how women have always subverted the codes determining the spaces in which they move, extending the boundaries of their social space, and empowering themselves as well as confronting existing power structures.
