Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. This collection of feminist articles provide cutting-edge gender analysis for understanding diverse personal and political challenges and opportunities in our fast-changing global world. Canadian and international authors offer varied social justice, anti-racist, indigenous, and subsistence perspectives on environmental, social, cultural, and political issues in women's struggles (both local and global) and visions for another world. This anthology uniquely situates current theory and activism in a rare historically-contextualized account of Canadian and global feminisms' deepening engagement with these issues. An indispensable resource for teachers, this collection will appeal to anyone seeking Canadian resources for the study of sociology, international development, environmental studies, political economy, women's human rights, labor studies, social policy, social work, international relations, migration/immigration, violence, poverty, militarism, colonialism and post-colonialism, social movements, global feminisms, peace, community organizing, sustainability and alternative possibilities.
