Overview

Of all the great social movements of the twentieth century, it is the women's movement that looks set to continue to shape the course of social progress over the next generation. This overview of the international women's movement by the well-known feminist activist Peggy Antrobus asks where are women now--particularly in the Third World--in the struggle against gender inequality? What are the issues--from poverty to sexual and reproductive health to the environment--that they face in different parts of the world? What challenges confront the women's movement and what strategies are needed? Rooted in the author's long experience in seeing these movements in a changing national and global context over the past decades, this intervention will prove an invaluable aid to reflection and action for the next generation of women as they carry through the unfinished business of women's emancipation.
