Abstract and Keywords
This section contains three chapters that examine how transnational feminist movements have challenged the gender inequalities that characterize neoliberal globalization. It focuses on different interpretations of power and solidarity across various divides within feminist practice, movement-building processes, and strategies. The first chapter analyzes transnational feminists’ contributions to movement building and policy at the global, regional, and local levels and explains how globalization has impacted transnational feminist activism since 1995. The second looks at the histories of key transnational feminists of different generations and considers how feminists have responded to the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality; how feminism has emerged as a praxis for economically marginalized women and women of color; the challenge neoliberalism poses to the solidarity of the feminist movement; and how feminism has addressed the North-South divide in the face of acute neoliberal conservatism. The third chapter outlines transnational feminist contributions to theory and praxis.
