about

Global Feminisms Since 1945is an innovative historical introduction to the issues of contemporary feminism, with a truly global perspective. It is a concise anthology considering the similarities and differences between feminisms in West and East, North and South, and highlighting class, racial, ethnic and imperial tensions and claims in the twentieth century. The book analyses the roots, development and, in some cases, the conclusions of feminisms and how they have interacted.
From the European and American feminist movements to those in the ex-Soviet Union and women's rights groups in Africa and East Asia,Global Feminisms Since 1945examines the key economic, technological, sexual, reproductive, ecological and political debates.
Bonnie G. Smith is Professor of History at Rutgers University, and her many books includeChanging Lives(Houghton Mifflin, 1989),The Gender of History(Harvard, 1998) andConfessions of a Concierge(Yale, 1985)
