New book – Women’s Movements: Flourishing or in Abeyance?

Sandra Grey and Marian Sawer (eds) Women’s Movements: Flourishing or in
Abeyance?

Marian Sawer and Sandra Grey have a new book out from Routledge on women’s
movements, including those of Britain (Fiona Mackay). The book makes an
original contribution to social movement theory, testing the concept of
social movement ‘abeyance’ in a range of countries-including Australia,
Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United
States. It contests approaches that assume that the life span of social
movements is determined by the transitory nature of disruptive action and
provides evidence of the diverse repertoires employed by women’s movements
over time and place. It includes the voices of young activists and an
account of the new spaces that they occupy, from multilateral institutions
to the music scene and the worldwide web.
