About this book


International Perspectives on Gender and Democratization brings together the experience of women's democratic movements in different countries and regions, North and South, and assesses how different discourses of democracy have been used by women's groups to assert women's rights. Sensitive to particular histories, ideologies, and cultural contexts, the contributors assess the strengths and the problems facing women's democratic movements as they consolidate their gains and face new challenges.
