Lucy Delap: Feminisms: A Global History


Feminism’s origins have often been framed around a limited cast of mostly
white and educated foremothers, but the truth is that feminism has been
and continues to be a global movement. For centuries, women from all
walks of life have been mobilizing for gender justice. As the last decade
has reminded even the most powerful women, there is nothing “post-feminist” about our world. And there is much to be learned from the
passion and protests of the past.
