Overview

An exciting Canadian collection of feminist articles that provide cutting-edge gender analysis for understanding diverse personal and political challenges and opportunities in our fast-changing global world. Canadian and international authors offer varied social justice, anti-racist, Indigenous, and subsistence perspectives on environmental, social, cultural, and political issues in women's local and global struggles and visions for another world. The book combines articles by formative researchers in key areas with historically-specific reflections and analyses of Canadian and other feminist activists as they first face, come to understand, and learn to address (with their sisters around the world) emerging neo-liberalism's impacts on women. This anthology, thus, uniquely situates current theory and activism in a rare historically-contextualized account of Canadian and global feminisms' deepening engagement with these issues. Anyone concerned to understand Canadian and international neo-liberal policies' impact on women and women's growing understanding and resistance to these policies will be interested in this book. As well as women's studies courses, this collection will be an indispensable resource for teachers seeking globally-informed, gender, race, class, and Indigenous aware Canadian resources for the study of sociology, international development, environmental studies, political economy, women's human rights, labour studies, social policy, social work, international relations, migration/immigration, violence, poverty, militarism, colonialism and post-colonialism, social movements, global feminisms, peace, community organizing, sustainability and alternative possibilities.
