'This volume makes visible the challenges faced by women in their important organized efforts to defend peaceful communities and cultivate a non-violent world.'
Rosalie Bertell, recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, the UNEP Global 500 award and the Sean MacBride International Peace Award.
'This fine collection of feminist writing from many parts of the world is an invaluable resource for those of us working locally with global perspectives. In it, feminist understandings, forged in particular struggles in many different locations are honoured and shared and their general strategic significance explored. Here we read about women's resistance to Arak production in India and oil production in Nigeria, feminists' personal and political understandings of sexual pleasure, of leadership, and of peace and human rights, and feminists resistance to the genderizing of their visions.'
Monica Munoz-Vargas, Unifem regional director, Brazil and Southern Cone
'It is refreshing to read a volume devoted to finding answers to questions posed by feminist theorists ... This volume is a valuable resource for feminist scholars and activists seeking to find new ways in which to focus and inspire their work, and for feminist academics seeking to link theory to the practices taking place outside of colleges and universities.'
Sherran Clarence, York University, Canada
'[A] powerful, invaluable and oh so timely book ... It brings you vitally important new insights, fresh horizons and critique that will give you pause to consider and reflect. It will also furnish you with inspiration to sustain your ecology of pratice ... All chapters add reams to our knowledge and understanding of feminist endeavour, political activism, rationale and global place.'
