Feminism Without Borders

Duke University Press

By Chandra Talpade Mohanty
Posted March 1, 2003
Tags Faculty Books
Feminism Without Borders opens with Mohanty’s influential critiques of western feminism and closes with a reconsideration of that piece based on her latest thinking regarding the ways that gender matters in the racial, class and national formations of globalization. In between these essays, Mohanty meditates on the lives of women workers at different ends of the global assembly line (in India, the United Kingdom and the United States); feminist writing on experience, identity and community; dominant conceptions of multiculturalism and citizenship; and the corporatization of the North American academy. She considers the evolution of interdisciplinary programs like women’s studies and race and ethnic studies; pedagogies of accommodation and dissent; and transnational women’s movements for grassroots ecological solutions and consumer, health and reproductive rights.

Reviews

"Over the past two decades, Chandra Talpade Mohanty has produced an extraordinary body of writings on transnational feminism, radically changing the way we think about such categories as 'third world women,' 'women of color' and 'globalization.' This volume combines her now classic essays with new writings that accentuate the centrality of anticapitalist feminist theories and practices to the most expansive and forward-looking version of women's studies today." - Angela Y. Davis
