Women's Organizing: A Gateway to a New Approach for Women's Studies
AbstractWomen's organizing as a subject of study privileges women's agency and encourages students to redefine themselves as political actors. It offers a unique opportunity to demonstrate the relevance of often inaccessible debates in feminist theory, for example, about fluid identities, feminism as process, and contextual analysis. This article explores four ways of examining women's organizing that provide entry points into theory: the disaggregation of women's organizing and feminist organizing; the emphasis on context and strategic relativism; the move from identity politics to strategic alliances; and the differentiation of international, global and transnational organizing.
