Description - The Future of Women's Rights by Joanna Kerr

This book arises out of shared concern at the potential threat posed to the work of women's movements by various emerging trends: the impacts of globalization and neoliberal economics, developments in biotechnology, the neo-conservative backlash against women's rights, monopolistic and exclusive ownership of information technologies, fundamentalisms of various kinds, the rise of identity politics, and the rise of violent conflict and war. The contributors want to see women's movements evaluate the methods they have used until now to make their future political work more effective. They try to identify current issues and trends in the world. They think through how these may impact on women and the work of women's movements. And they identify how women should prepare for them, and what strategies they should prioritise. The result is a thought-provokingly diverse range of views about how women should seize the initiative and respond.
