How can the local, grassroots successes of feminist organisations be sustained and transformed as women enter the larger institutional arena and succeed in accessing governments and non-governmental organisations? How can feminists deal with the many historical, organizational, ethical, conceptual, strategic and practical issues facing them today? What are the forces arrayed against them? The contributors all have direct practical experience of women's activism and a shared understanding of the autonomous women's movement as the source of feminist theory, power and vision. With clear-eyed realism and passionate optimism they reveal a vibrant trans-national feminist community in struggle. They describe how it is redefining wealth, work, peace, democracy, sexuality, family, human rights, development, community, and citizenship, and dealing with issues in ways which both honour local specifities and enrich global movements.
