Feminism and Migration: Cross-Cultural Engagements is a rich, original, and diverse collection on the intersections of feminism and migration in western and non-western contexts. This book explores the question: does migration empower women? Through wide-ranging topics on theorizing feminism in migration, contesting identities and agency, resistance and social justice, and religion for change, well-known and emerging scholars provide in-depth analysis of how social, cultural, political, and economic forces shape new modalities and perspectives among women upon migration. It highlights the centrality of the various meanings and interpretations of feminism(s) in the lives of immigrant and migrant women in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Eastern Europe, France, Greece, Japan, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Papua New Guinea, Spain, and the United States. The well-researched chapters explore the ways in which feminism and migration across cultures relate to women’s experiences in host societies --- as women, wives, mothers, exiles, nuns, and workers---and the avenues of interactions for change. Cross-cultural engagements point to the convergence and even disjunctures between (im)migrant and non-immigrant women that remain unrecognized in contemporary mainstream discourses on migration and feminism.

The Legacy of Second-Wave Feminism in American Politics

This book chronicles the influence of second wave feminism on everything from electoral politics to LGBTQ rights. The original descriptions of second wave feminism focused on elite, white voices, obscuring the accomplishments of many activists, as third wave feminists rightly criticized. Those limited narratives also prematurely marked the end of the movement, imposing an imaginary timeline on what is a continuous struggle for women’s rights. Within the chapters of this volume, scholars provide a more complex description of second wave feminism, in which the sustained efforts of women from many races, classes, sexual orientations, and religious traditions, in the fight for equality have had a long-term impact on American politics. These authors argue that even the “Second Wave” metaphor is incomplete, and should be replaced by a broader, more-inclusive metaphor that accurately depicts the overlapping and extended battle waged by women activists. With the gift of hindsight and the awareness of the limitations of and backlash to this “Second Wave,” the time is right to reflect on the feminist cause in America and to chart its path forward.

Premio Libro del Año 2017 del Gremio de Libreros de Madrid En este conjunto de ensayos mordaces y oportunos sobre la persistente desigualdad entre mujeres y hombres y la violencia basada en el género, Solnit cita su experiencia personal y otros ejemplos reales de cómo los hombres muestran una autoridad que no se han ganado, mientras que las mujeres han sido educadas para aceptar esa realidad sin cuestionarla. La autora narra la experiencia que vivió durante una cena en la que un desconocido se puso a hablarle acerca de un libro increíble que había leído, ignorando el hecho de que ella misma lo había escrito, a pesar de que se lo hicieron saber al principio de la conversación. Al final resultó que ni siquiera había leído el libro, sino una reseña del New York Times. El término mansplaining conjuga man ("hombre") y explaining ("explica"), en alusión a este fenómeno: cuando un hombre explica algo a una mujer, lo hace de manera condescendiente, porque, con independencia de cuánto sepa sobre el tema, siempre asume que sabe más que ella. El concepto tiene su mayor expresión en aquellas situaciones en las que el hombre sabe poco y la mujer, por el contrario, es la "experta" en el tema, algo que, para la soberbia del primero, es irrelevante: él tiene algo que explicar y eso es lo único que importa.

What does sexual orientation mean if the very categories of gender are in question? How do we measure equality when our society’s definitions of “male” and “female” leave out much of the population? There is no consensus on what a “real” man or woman is, where one’s sex begins and ends, or what purpose the categories of masculine and feminine traits serve. While significant strides have been made in recent years on behalf of women’s, gay and lesbian rights, there is still a large division between the law and day-to-day reality for LGBTQIA and female-identified individuals in American society. The practices, media outlets and institutions that privilege heterosexuality and traditional gender roles as “natural” need a closer examination. Gender & Sexuality For Beginners considers the uses and limitations of biology in defining gender. Questioning gender and sex as both categories and forms of compulsory identification, it critically examines the issues in the historical and contemporary construction, meaning and perpetuation of gender roles. Gender & Sexuality For Beginners interweaves neurobiology, psychology, feminist, queer and trans theory, as well as historical gay and lesbian activism to offer new perspectives on gender inequality, ultimately pointing to the clear inadequacy of gender categories and the ways in which the sex-gender system oppresses us all.

This book is the second of a two-volume anthology of primary source documents on feminism in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Unique in its extensive treatment of the first-wave feminist movement in Canada, it highlights distinct elements of its origins and evolution. The book is organized into thematic rubrics that address key issues, debates, and struggles within the first wave in Canada, as well as international influences and Canadian engagement in transnational networks and initiatives. Documents by Indigenous, Anglophone, Francophone, and immigrant female activists demonstrate the richness and complexity of Canadian feminism during this period. Together with its first volume, Documenting First Wave Feminisms reveals a more nuanced picture, attentive to nationalism and transnationalism, of the first wave than has previously been understood.

Winner of the 2013 National Jewish Book Award, Women's Studies Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace explores the social and political activism of American Jewish women from approximately 1890 to the beginnings of World War II. Written in an engaging style, the book demonstrates that no history of the birth control, suffrage, or peace movements in the United States is complete without analyzing the impact of Jewish women's presence. The volume is based on years of extensive primary source research in more than a dozen archives and among hundreds of primary sources, many of which have previously never been seen. Voluminous personal papers and institutional records paint a vivid picture of a world in which both middle-class and working-class American Jewish women were consistently and publicly engaged in all the major issues of their day and worked closely with their non-Jewish counterparts on behalf of activist causes. This extraordinarily well researched volume makes a unique contribution to the study of modern women's history, modern Jewish history, and the history of American social movements.

Sarah Grimke, feminist activist and abolitionist, was one of the nineteenth century's most prescient feminist thinkers. She was the first American woman to write a coherent feminist argument, and her writings and work championing the emancipation of woman still remain a powerful influence on the rise of feminist consciousness. However, Sarah Grimke has long been given short shrift as a woman of no real historical significance aside from the her association with her sister, abolitionist Angelina Grimke. In The Feminist Thought of Sarah Grimke, Gerda Lerner places Sarah's work in the context of the long history of feminist thought, showing that she was indeed a significant feminist figure and clearly ahead of her time. Focusing on Sarah's essays and letters to journals, newspapers, and contemporaries, and including illuminating articles by Lerner herself, Sarah is finally given full credit for her contributions to the feminist and abolitionist movements in pre-Civil War America.As Lerner explains, "That Sarah's work came to us in snippets and fragments, handwritten on paper cut out of a notebook, embedded in the manuscript collection of her brother-in-law, unnoticed and forgotten for over a hundred years is typical of what happened to the intellectual work of women," not indicative of her accomplishments as a major feminist thinker. The Feminist Thought of Sarah Grimke not only sheds light on Sarah Grimke as feminist thinker, theorist, and activist, it powerfully accents Gerda Lerner's pioneering efforts in the universal recognition of the feminist consciousness.
