Sisterhood is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology

Robin Morgan
4/5 (34 ratings)
Sisterhood Is Global has been revered as the essential feminist text on the international women's movement since its first appearance, when it was hailed as "a historic publishing event." The anthology features original essays Morgan commissioned from a deliberately eclectic mix of women both famous and less known-grass-roots activisits, politicians, scholars, querillas, novelists, social scientists, and journalists-representing seventy countries, from every region and political system, with particular emphasis on the Global South. These truth-telling, impassioned essays celebrate the diversity as well as the similarity of women's experience; they also reveal shared female rage, vision, and pragmatic strategies for worldwide feminist solidarity and political transformation.

The first such international collection, Sisterhood Is Global became an instant classic and remains unequalled in its breadth and comprehensiveness. The book covers Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, and includes moving essays from such distinguished writers as Marjorie Agosin , Ama Ata Aidoo , Shulamit Aloni , Peggy Antrobus , Simone de Beauvoir , Lidia Falcon , Hema Goonatilake , Fatima Mernessi , Nawal El Saadawi , Ana Titkow , Marilyn Waring , and Xiao Lu .
