Global Feminisms: Global Vision of Feminism
Source:Chinese Women's Research Network | Release Date:2013-3-5
Keyword: global feminism, transnational feminism, women and development, women's human rights movement
Author: Zhang Lu

Global feminisms have been gaining increasing currency as an important international feminist theoretical discourse. This article divides this discourse along four lines of arguments addressing the key question of why there is a need for feminists to imagine "the feminist" and "the global" together. The four components include:(1) global sisterhood and its critique,(2) feminism as a traveling theory,(3) women and development in response to globalization,(4) women’s human rights movement. The objective of this article is not an integration of discourses; rather, it intends to describe a new frontier of feminist theorization and its development amidst different voices, debates and ongoing communications. It also hopes to involve more Chinese scholars and activists into the building of this theoretical discourse.
