The contributors to this volume are united in seeing a pressing need for women's movements to evaluate the methods they have used until now, with a view to making their political work more effective in future. 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, in order to protect and advance their agenda.
With as deliberately diverse a group of women thinkers as this, there is inevitably a thought-provokingly diverse range of views about how women ought to respond if they not be pushed on to the defensive, but instead take the initiative again and be more proactive across the wide range of arenas and issues that bear particularly on one-half of humanity.

'This collection of vibrant essays demonstrates conclusively that, although men still run it, intellectually, politically and ethically the world is no longer seen only through masculine eyes.'
- Rosi Braidotti, Utrecht University
'This is simply the best international collection of feminist writing for some years. It is refreshingly textured and honest in its politics, which range geo-politically and address the dominant issues and arenas of current patriarchal folly. It is erudite, it is strategic - and it is highly recommended.'
Marilyn Waring, Massey University and author of Counting for Nothing/If Women Counted
