Presentation from publisher
White, Black, indigenous, national and ethnic minority women's movements in Europe are rooted in different communities and have emerged along separate paths. This book examines how relations between ethnic majority and minority women's movements in Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom have developed and are being talked about by movement activists. Different historical and socio-political factors, state structures, and social movement and civil society characteristics provide the background for why ethnic majority and minority women have organized separately along racial and ethnic lines. In turn, separate organizing, as well as differing political interests, have made it challenging for women's movement organizations to cooperate across racial and ethnic divides. A complex picture of conflict and disunity, as well as strategic sisterhood alliance, characterizes their relationships.
This book examines the gender, racial and ethnic patterns of women's movement mobilization, the articulation of critiques against majority women's movements from minority women, responses from majority women's movements, and efforts at joint mobilization and strategic sisterhood in the area of violence against women.
