In ""Women and the Politics of Place"", Wendy Harcourt and Arturo Escobar analyze women's economic and social justice movements by challenging traditional views. The authors reveal how an interrelated set of transformations around the body, environment, and the economy factors into place-based practices of women and how these provide alternative ways of advancement in these mobilizations. The book develops a conceptual framework based on the most current debates in anthropology, geography, ecology, feminist, and development studies. This guides academics, activists, and policymakers toward an understanding of how women are politically negotiating globalization. Also featured are the experiences of women working to defend their homelands on issues such as reproductive rights, land and community, rural and urban environments, and global capital. Written for wide use by academics, students, and practitioners, ""Women and the Politics of Place"" bridges the division between academic and activist knowledge with an original analysis of global feminist issues.
