"Making Feminist Politics" is empirically rich and analytically nuanced. Ranging from the family to global governance and from internal politics in an international union to coalition-building at the World Social Forum, this is fascinating material. -Catherine Eschle, coauthor of "Making Feminist Sense of the Global Justice Movement". This is a book that has been needed for a long time.

Situating specific case studies within broad feminist topics, Suzanne Franzway and Mary Margaret Fonow .

Making Feminist Politics connects the diversity of women's experiences around the world both inside and outside the home and highlights the innovative ways women workers attain their common goals.

This book set out to investigate how union women make feminist politics within and through the trade union .

This book set out to investigate how union women make feminist politics within and through the trade union movement in such ways as to achieve feminist goals, particularly at transnational levels. This is important for feminists and unionists because, as Sylvia Walby (1986) points out, trade unions are becoming the largest mass organizations of women supporting social democratic projects (231). Making feminist politics in any sphere of life and at any level necessitates engaging with the sexual politics that prevail.

In this timely and detailed examination of the intersections of feminism, labor politics, and global studies, Suzanne Franzway and Mary Margaret Fonow reveal the ways in which women across the world are transforming labor unions in the contemporary era. Situating specific case studies within broad feminist topics, Franzway and Fonow concentrate on union feminists mobilizing at multiple sites, issues of wages and equity, child care campaigns, work-life balance, and queer organizing, demonstrating how unions around the world are broadening their focuses from contractual details to empowerment and family and feminist issues. By connecting the diversity of women's experiences around the world both inside and outside the home and highlighting the innovative ways women workers attain their common goals, Making Feminist Politics lays the groundwork for recognition of the total individual in the future of feminist politics within global union movements.
