This ambitious volume brings together original essays on the U.S. women’s movement with analyses of women’s movements in other countries around the world. A comparative perspective and a common theme-feminism in social movement action-unite these voices in a way that will excite students and inspire further research. From the grassroots to the global, the significance of the U.S women’s movement in the international arena cannot be denied. At the same time, the way in which international feminism has developed-in Asia, in Latin America, in Europe-has altered and expanded the landscape of the U.S. women’s movement forever. These distinguished authors show us how.
