‘Provides a rich perspective on the lived experiences and agencies of women. A highly creative endeavour that will be valuable to activists and academics.’
Leela Fernandes, author of Transnational Feminism in the United States

‘A diverse and exciting tapestry of themes and authors.’
Lourdes Beneria, Cornell University (Emerita)


Straddling disciplines and continents, Feminist Futures interweaves scholarship and social activism to explore the evolving position of women in the South.

Working at the intersection of cultural studies, critical development studies and feminist theory, the book's contributors articulate a radical and innovative framework for understanding the linkages between women, culture and development, applying it to issues ranging from sexuality and the gendered body to the environment, technology and the cultural politics of representation.

This revised and updated edition brings together leading academics, as well as a new generation of activists and scholars, to provide a fresh perspective on the ways in which women in the South are transforming our understanding of development.
