Shaping a Global Women's Agenda: Women's Ngos and Global Governance, 1925-85 Cover Image


Available in paperback for the first time, and drawing on a wide range of archival sources, Shaping a global women's agenda documents international women's history through the lens of the long-established Western-led international organisations that defined and dominated women's involvement in
global politics from the 1925 founding of the Joint Standing Committee of Women's International Organisations up through the UN Decade for Women (1976-85). Documenting specific global campaigns in episodes that span the twentieth century, Garner includes biographical information about lesser known
international leaders as she discusses important historic debates regarding feminist goals and strategies among women from the East and West, North and South. This interdisciplinary study addresses questions of interest to historians, political scientists, international relations scholars,
sociologists, and feminist scholars and activists whose work promotes women's and human rights.
