Drawing on a wide range of archival sources, Karen Garner documents international women's history through the lens of the long-established Western-led international organisations that defined and dominated women's involvement in global politics from the 1925 founding of the Joint Standing Committee of Women's International Organisations up through the UN Decade for Women (1976-85). Documenting specific global campaigns in episodes that span the twentieth century, Garner includes biographical information about lesser known international leaders as she discusses important historic debates regarding feminist goals and strategies among women from the East and West, North and South. This interdisciplinary study addresses questions of interest to historians, political scientists, international relations scholars, sociologists, and feminist scholars and activists whose work promotes women's and human rights.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In Shaping a Global Women's Agenda, Karen Garner provides an impressively thorough account of the growth of Western-led women's organisations and the concomitant elevation of 'women's issues' in global governance...Shaping a Global Women's Agenda is an illuminating account of the achievements and pitfalls of a certain brand of Western internationalism, and will be of interest to historians and international relations scholars. Garner has produced a clearly written and well-organized study of great value to scholars of women's and human rights, international relations, diplomacy, history and political science. -- .
