Voicing Demands : Feminist Activism in Transitional Contexts Paperback / softback

Edited by Sohela Nazneen, Maheen Sultan

Part of the Feminisms and Development series

Description

Voicing Demands is a collection of analytical narratives of what has happened to feminist voice, a key pathway to women's empowerment.

These narratives depart from the existing debate on women's political engagement in formal institutions to examine feminist activism for building and sustaining constituencies through raising, negotiating and legitimizing women's voice under different contexts. Bringing together the reflections and experiences of feminist researchers and activists in South Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, this unique volume explores how various global trends, such as the development of transnational linkages, the rise of conservative forces, the NGOization of feminist movements, and an increase in the power of donors, have created opportunities and challenges for feminist voice and activism.
