Global Feminist Politics examines the changing global context for feminist political action, its meaning and forms. It acknowledges the existence of dissent and debate among feminists, asserting that such debate leads to innovation in theory and practice. This book reaches the conclusion that the future of the women''s movement depends upon a dialogue which is unafraid to cut across perceived differences.
Focusing on key issues raise by a feministic commitment to global political change, this book covers subjects including:
* the relevance of contemporary feminist politics for younger women
* gendered accounts of genocide and catastrophe
* exile, migration and diaspora
* gender and the internet
* women and the nationalist movement in India
* gender issues in Pakistan, Australia, South Africa and the Middle East.
Featuring an international panel of cutting-edge feminist thinkers, Global Feminist Politics demonstrates the innovative work being undertaken in the academic and professional worlds, as well as in women''s activism. It is an invaluable resource for students in Women''s Studies and Development Studies, as well as all those interested in the development of contemporary global feminism.
