On the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights, feminists are at a critical juncture to re-envision and
re-engage in a politics of human rights. Interdisciplinary feminist
conversations among scholar-activists can both challenge and enrich
new directions in feminism and human rights. The scholarly and
activist writings that comprise this collection advance both
research and critical conversations about feminism and human rights
by revealing the transformative potential of a feminist human
rights praxis that embraces both critique and collective justice.
The editors' method has been to move beyond a wholesale dismissal
of human rights so that the book may begin new dialogues that
envision transnational, gender and antiracist social justice
approaches. This book features work that engages academic critiques
of human rights frameworks yet goes further by exploring the
potential of human rights activism `from below'. These
groundbreaking chapters and conversations provide evidence of the
persistent challenges and the attendant possibilities inherent in
feminist human rights activism and theorizing - they offer this
book, underscoring the creative displays of grassroots resistance
by women globally and affirming transnational feminist solidarity.
This book was published as a special issue of the International
Feminist Journal of Politics.
