Women Imagine Change: A Global Anthology of Women's Resistance from 600 B.C.E. to Present

Cover
Eugenia C. DeLamotte, Natania Meeker, Jean F. O'Barr
Psychology Press, 1997 - 518 Seiten
This global, multicultural anthology shows how women from some thirty countries, across twenty-six centuries, have found ways to resist oppression and gain power over their lives. Organized around themes of concern to contemporary readers, Women Imagine Change explores: relationships between women's sexuality and spirituality; women's interlinked struggles to control their labor and education; their work reshaping representations of gender; and their varied translations of knowledge into power. Extensive introductions combine a broad theoretical perspective on gender and resistance with vivid biographical context.

Not only do the writings show women's resistance from an historical perspective; they also offer crucial insight into questions women are posing today about the relationships between their own power, the power of the various groups to which they belong, and the larger systems of power they confront in the world around them.
