Subversive Women: Women's Movements in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean (Hardback)Saskia Wieringa (editor)

- Not available
This collection brings together the results of research into the history of women's movements in five countries - Indonesia, Peru, Somalia, and the Sudan - and one region - the Caribbean. The researchers set out to investigate the histories of women's movements in their different countries in the context of present day struggles. The result is a range of experiences which demonstrate not only the long histories but also the complexity and diversity of women's movements in different contexts. Whether it is in Peru, or Trinidad and Tobago, or Jamaica, Somalia, Sudan, India or Sumartra, the essays document subversion, decoding and resistance on the part of women, as well as experiences of defeat and break-ups faced by women's organizations.
