Author Robin Morgan, a champion of women’s rights herself, expertly weaves these inspiring essays into one .

Author Robin Morgan, a champion of women’s rights herself, expertly weaves these inspiring essays into one comprehensive feminist text. Each chapter focuses on a different country and includes data on education, government, marriage, motherhood, prostitution, rape, sexual harassment, and sexual preference.

An instant classic, this ground-breaking international collection remains unequalled as an invaluable reference. Most women’s movement coverages tend to be national in scope, so it’s especially important to see the continued updating of an essay anthology which mixes women’s opinions from around the world; especially the ‘Global South’. From personal ‘herstories’ to data on women, this promises something for everyone.

Sisterhood Is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology. A powerful and essential anthology that sheds light on the status of women throughout the world Hailed by Alice Walker as one of the most important human documents of the century, this collection of groundbreaking essays examines the global status of women’s experiences, from oppression to persecution. Originally published in 1984, the compilation features pieces written by a diverse set of powerful women-journalists, politicians, grassroots activists, and scholars-from seventy countries.

Made up of short essays by women who represent more than 80 countries, Sisterhood Is Global "was hailed as 'the definitive text on the international women's movement,' and adopted widely as a course text in women's studies, international affairs, global economics, and several other disciplines", as Morgan has acknowledged. Among the women contributing essays are: Mahnaz Afkhami (Iran), Marjorie Agosin (Chile), Ama Ata Aidoo (Ghana), Shulamit Aloni (Israel), Peggy Antrobus (Caribbean), Berit Ås (Norway), Simone de Beauvoir (France), Cheryl Benard (Austria), Motlalepula Chabaku (South Africa), Nguyen Thi Dinh (Vietnam), Lidia Falcon (Spain), Patricia Giles (Australia), Hema Goonatilake (Sri Lanka), Keiko Higuchi (Japan), Rada Iveković (Yugoslavia), Devaki Jain (India), Nell McCafferty (Ireland), Tatyana Mamonova (USSR), Fatima Mernissi (Morocco), Irmtraud Morgner (East Germany), 'Molara Ogundipe-Leslie (Nigeria), Maria de Lourdes Pintasilgo (Portugal), Nawal El Saadawi (Egypt), Edit Schlaffer (Austria), Ngahuia Te Awekotuku (New Zealand), Ana Titkow (Poland), Mallica Vajrathon (Thailand), Sima Wali (Afghanistan), Marilyn Waring (New Zealand), and Xiao Lu (China).

This is a classic feminist work that I read back in the early 70's and it was the book that opened my eyes to feminism.

This book contains contributions from 68 nations. Morgan wrote in the 'Prefatory Note' to this 1984 collection, "The women whose articles appear ... are a deliberately eclectic mix: grass-roots organizers, members of parliaments, novelists, scientists, journalists, guerrillas, scholars, poets, former heads of states, women in exile or underground, public feminist spokespersons and 'closet feminists' in international diplomatic circles, activists and theorists, women never before heard from and women already known worldwide. The political spectrum embraces radical feminist, moderate/reform feminist, and socialist feminist, to show as wide as possible a world view of women's activism."

Here are some quotations from the book:

"Not only are females most of the poor, the starving, and the illiterate, but women and children constitute more than 90 percent of all refugee populations." (Pg. 2)
"It is hardly surprising that, country after country, education emerges as the first step in the long journey toward women's freedom." (Pg. 31)
"Feminism was thought to be a Western phenomenon. But an idea's origins, it was agreed, ought not to be the main consideration in one's judgment of its validity." (Pg. 331)
"The greatest enemy of any enlightened society and of freedom for all uman beings---and especially women---is the organized clergy." (Pg. 363)
"...feminism also meets up with an economic and social reality so dramatic that, ironically, it does not allow women from the poorer classes to recognize that they are oppressed AS WOMEN." (Pg. 553)
"The mere fact that feminism appears to have originated in 'developed capitalistic countries' is taken as a main argument against it. It seems that certain ideas are good only because they came from certain parts of the world." (Pg. 736)
"Women, like men, are just ordinary human beings subject to the same temptations when in the position of power." (Pg. 743)
