Book Description :

American feminism has always been about more than the struggle for individual rights and equal treatment under the law. In this book, [the author] retrieves an alternative tradition of women's reform that sought answers to questions increasingly pressing today: how to balance work and family and how to address growing economic inequalities. [This book] trace[s] the history of American social justice feminism from the 1930s into the present and to link that continuous tradition with the leadership of labor women. -Back cover.

Book Description :

"This Very Short Introduction explores the major transformations in American women's lives, ranging from political activism to popular culture, the workforce, and the family. Beginning in early America, it places gender at the center of American history, making it clear that women's experiences were not always the same as men's. Susan Ware shows how women's domestic and waged labor shaped the northern economy and how slavery affected the lives of both free and enslaved southern women. She moves through the tumultuous decades of industrialization and urbanization, describing the nineteenth-century movements led by women (temperance, moral reform, and suffrage). The book culminates in twentieth-century female activism for civil rights and successive waves of feminism. From Anne Bradstreet to Ida B. Wells to Eleanor Roosevelt, this book recognizes women as a force in American history and, more important, tells women's history as American history." -- Front cover flap.

Book Description :

Extrait de la couverture : "This important anthology of feminist writing from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean brilliantly demonstrates the complexity and diversity of women's movements and organisations in the South. The book opens with an analysis of women's history as subversion and the methodological aspects of feminist research projects. Individual contributors look at their own countries and the forms of resistance - rebellion, unions, popular theatre and the use of poetry - that arise whilst looking also at issues of resistance to colonial policy and patriarchy. An exploration of "feminism" as it is defined in the North and the South and "woman" from a female-centred and post-structuralist position add new perspectives to ongoing debates. Throughtout, the book gives a distinct historical perspective on women's organising. It shows how women have always subverted the codes determining the spaces in which they move, extending the boundaries of their social space, empowering themselves as well as activity resisting prevailing power relations. This is a much needed volume for women's studies academics, students and activists."

Book Description :

Women's Activism in Latin America and the Caribbean brings together a group of interdisciplinary scholars who analyze and document the diversity, vibrancy, and effectiveness of women's experiences and organizing in Latin America and the Caribbean during the past four decades. Most of the expressions of collective agency are analyzed in this book within the context of the neoliberal model of globalization that has seriously affected most Latin American and Caribbean women's lives in multiple ways. Contributors explore the emergence of the area's feminist movement, dictatorships of the 1970s, the Central American uprisings, the urban, grassroots organizing for better living conditions, and finally, the turn toward public policy and formal political involvement and the alternative globalization movement. Geared toward bridging cultural realities, this volume represents women's transformations, challenges, and hopes, while considering the analytical tools needed to dissect the realities, understand the alternatives, and promote gender democracy.

Book Description :

The nineteenth century was a period of peak popularity for travel to Latin America, where a new political independence was accompanied by loosened travel restrictions. Such expeditions resulted in numerous travel accounts, most by men. However, because this period was a time of significant change and exploration, a small but growing minority of female voyagers also portrayed the people and places that they encountered. Women through Women's Eyes draws from ten insightful accounts by female visitors to Latin America in the nineteenth century. These firsthand tales bring a number of Latin American women into focus: nuns, market women, plantation workers, the wives and daughters of landowners and politicians, and even a heroine of the independence movement. Questions of family life, religion, women's labor, and education are addressed, in addition to the interrelationships of men and women within the structure of Latin American societies. Women through Women's Eyes is a perceptive look at Latin American women from various walks of life during this period. Within these pages, the reader catches lengthy glimpses of the women on both sides of the travel accounts-author and subject-and thereby may examine them all and their societies close-up.
