Sisterhood Is Global
Sisterhood Is Global features original essays representing 70 countries, from every region and political system, with particular emphasis on the Global South. Each country’s essay is preceded by a statistical preface containing carefully researched and referenced data on the status of women. The first such international collection, Sisterhood Is Global became an instant classic and remains unequaled: a rich, compelling reader and an invaluable reference. Alice Walker has called the book one of the most important documents in human history.
"One of the most important human documents of the century."
"No reader, classroom, or library concerned with women or international politics can afford to be without it."
"The Whole Feminist Catalogue: A fascinating compendium."
"[A] vast amount of cultural and factual information . . . a powerful contribution to the literature of women's studies and human rights."
