About this item

Originating in a discussion, this anthology includes a wide range of issues, since gender relationships permeate all realms of life for individuals and sociological groups as well as providing the genesis and focus for many organizations. The authors occupy a range of views regarding whether, for example, social movements are organizations, and whether voluntary and non-governmental; or whether empowerment and emancipation are interchangeable terms or represent important distinctions. The book is focused around different understandings of emancipation, how domination is to be resisted and how emancipation is to be achieved through organizing. The first section contains contributions that focus primarily on women’s activism: How it is to be achieved and how domination is to be resisted through organized collective action. The second section focuses on organizations: Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), whose primary purpose is women’s emancipation, CSOs run by women and women working in mixed CSOs. The editors hope that the lessons learned from these cases can help activities and researchers alike to focus on future strategies. Distributed in North America by University of Chicago Press.
