Quick Overview

An international perspective on the resurgence in feminist movements: the advances and the setbacks, the challenges and the contradictions.

‘Informative and concise. Let us take inspiration and create a fairer, more feminist 21st century.’
- Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director, Oxfam International


Feminism is back in fashion, with a resurgence of campaigning by a new generation. From Algeria to Pakistan, South Africa to Brazil, women are mobilising under a feminist banner to try and put a stop to violence, end discrimination, and ensure that laws are upheld. Increasing numbers of men are also realising that gender equality is in everyone's interest.

But the ideals that feminism stands for are also under attack. In the Global North, many people believe that women are now equal to men, and that feminism is no longer needed. And yet, all over the world, the hard-won gains that have been achieved by women’s movements over decades are under threat from right-wing and fundamentalist movements and from the ravages caused by austerity and conflict.

This book shows why we need feminism today more than ever. It offers an insight into its thinking and campaigning across the continents. And it encourages feminists of all ages – and both sexes – to celebrate their differences and to ‘make a little trouble’.

'This brief primer is as grounded and accessible as the movement itself. It’s about time!'
Michael Kimmel, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology

'A must-read for all who want to understand and join the fight for women’s equality.'
Mari Marcel Thekaekara, writer, campaigner and activist
