Looks at how the boundaries of a hegemonic white and Western women's studies might be challenged, and on the struggles faced by women who are attempting this in different parts of the world, expanding the women's studies agenda to include women's experiences of migration and nationalistic struggles. Subjects include women's writing in China in the 1980s, gender/women's studies in the Czech Republic, and Irish women and diaspora. Most of the material was originally presented at the July 1994 Women's Studies Network (UK) Association conference. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
