Transitions, Environments, Translations free pdf Is any movement in defense of women's rights a feminist movement? Simple answers to this question have given rise to as many misunderstandings and conflicts as cooperative collaborations. Now the essays in Transitions, Environments, Translations explore the varied meanings of feminism in different political, cultural, and historical contexts. They respond to the claim that feminism is Western in origin and universalist in theory, and to the assumption that feminist goals are self-evident and the same in all contexts. Rather than assume that there is a blueprint by which to measure the strength or success of feminism in different parts of the world, these essays consider feminism to be a site of local, national and international conflict. They ask: What is at stake in various political efforts by women in different parts of the world? What meanings have women given to their efforts? What has been their relationship to feminism as a concept and as an international movement? What happens when feminist ideas are translated from one language, one political concept, to another?
