Hidden from Herstory-Women, Feminism and New Global Solidarity

Women, Feminism and New Global Solidarity Peter Waterman The women's movement has long been active internationally and is often considered the exemplar of both the new social movements and a new kind of internationalism. Yet it is difficult to find even a single theoretical article on the historical or contemporary forms of feminist internationalism. There is, also, limited historical or contemporary research directly on the problem. It is therefore necessary to first ask why this might be so and then suggest how the vacuum might be filled The extensive literature around the subject does provide a sufficient basis for such theorising. There also exists a relevant body of feminist and other emancipatory writing which could contribute to the construction of such a theory.There remains a need for identifying the various possible fields for specialised research, and rubrics for possible overviews. We also need theoretically-informed studies of cases, types, forms and axes of international solidarity with and between women.
