Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0739113283, Paperback)The Power of Women's Organizing is a remarkable work that offers a glimpse into the women's movement outside the United States. Author Mangala Subramaniam addresses the mobilizing and organizing of the Indian women's movement in the larger context of globalization and the national social fabric. She draws attention to the emergence of multiple interests based on class, caste, religion, and geographic differences. Uniquely featuring the integration of rural women's experiences and a case study of the dalit women's challenges, this expert work examines the women's movement in India since the 1970s, its growth, and the tensions resulting from the representation of varied interests. Women's experiences outside of the West are a fruitful new source of understanding the women's movement and will be of interest to scholars of women's studies and sociology.
