Abstract and Keywords

This chapter analyzes the successes and limitations of the transnational feminist sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) movement using Elizabeth Friedman’s theory that transnational women’s rights organizing is indeed a “movement” and not merely an advocacy network. The chapter contributes to feminist movement theorizing by observing the dynamics within the transnational feminist SRHR movement engaged in United Nations processes in the 2000s. It explores the movement’s internal struggles, as well as analyzing its successes and looking at how transnational feminism has contributed to advancing global policy norms to advance sexual and reproductive rights and health. Finally, it provides some insights on what strategies feminist movements can employ in order to reinvent and reinvigorate its political work globally.

Keywords: transnational feminism, women’s rights, sexual and reproductive health and rights, United Nations
