About the Book

Written for activists, students, and people interested
in change, this book shows how various groups
from around the world – from the United States
to Tanzania, Chechnya to Sri Lanka – have taken
actions to improve their lives, end inequality,
and change global society. The case studies and
explanatory articles reveal how feminist, antiracist,
ecological, and peace movements reinforce each other
to achieve well-placed and enduring change.

About the Author(s)

Torry D. Dickinson is Professor of Women’s Studies
at Kansas State University. Terrie A. Becerra studies
the social implications of environmental and
agricultural sustainability.
