U.S. Feminisms in a Global Context

Lecture Description

This talk argues for the importance of globalizing the study of U.S. feminism. International events such as war and colonization as well as the transnational movement of people, ideas, and goods have shaped who becomes a feminist in the U.S. and their ideas about feminism. The interconnections between the global, national, and local will be analyzed by focusing on U.S. women’s activism in relation to political citizenship, economic equality, and sexual liberation.
