Scholars of social movements tend to overlook the achievements and political significance of women's movements. Through theoretical discussions and empirical examples, Solidarities Beyond Borders demonstrates the creativity and dynamism of transnational feminist and women's groups around the world. These timely case studies from North America, Latin America, and Southeast Asia explore the benefits and challenges of extending ties beyond national borders and disciplinary boundaries. The contributors not only bring to light the opportunities and challenges that globalization poses for transnationalizing women's movements, they offer important strategic, conceptual, and methodological lessons for all social movements.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Solidarities beyond Borders" will be a key reference for students and scholars - for the combination of the feminist international relations literature with the social movement literature, for the usefulness of the case studies and for the discussions about what constitutes transnationalism.
- Caroline Andrew, co-editor of Electing a Diverse Canada: The Representation of Immigrants, Minorities, and Women
"Solidarities beyond Borders" covers enormously important ground. As feminist movements become increasingly invisible in the North American context, readers everywhere need to know more about the dynamism of women's movements in much of the world. This is not a 'specialist' book, but will be useful to students in a wide range of disciplines, as well as to social activists.
- Lynne Phillips, co-editor of Transgressing Borders: Critical Perspectives on Gender, Household, Culture
