Woman's consciousness, man's world by Sheila Rowbotham( Book )

63 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A groundbreaking contribution to debates on women's oppression and consciousness, and the connections between socialism and feminism, this foundational text shows how the roles women adopt within the capitalist economy have shaped ideas about family and sexuality. Examining feminist consciousness from various vantage points -- social, sexual, cultural and economic -- Sheila Rowbotham identifies the conditions under which it developed, and how the formation of a new "way of seeing" for women can lead to collective solidarity"--Page 4 of cover

Dreamers of a new day : women who invented the twentieth century by Sheila Rowbotham( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Turkish and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amid the growth of globalized trade, mass production, immigration and urban slums that dominated the period from the 1880s to the onset of the First World War, an awakening was taking place among American and British women. Across the Atlantic and across political boundaries -- anarchists to liberals, feminists and non-feminists -- female pioneers shared a sense that social change was possible, and acted upon that belief. Dreamers of a New Day explores a period, from the belle époque to the roaring twenties, when women overturned social norms and assumptions as they struggled to define themselves as individuals. Forming broad coalitions and movements, they transformed the conditions of their own lives, decades before the intellectuals of the 1960s conceptualized "everyday life" as an arena for radical activity. Drawing on a wealth of original research, Sheila Rowbotham has written a groundbreaking new history examining how women came to be modern. Challenging existing conceptions of citizenship and culture, from ethical living to consumerism, sexuality to democracy, these dreamers shaped many of the issues that remain at the forefront of twenty-first-century life."
Women in movement : feminism and social action by Sheila Rowbotham( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Persian and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1992, this book is an historical introduction to a wide range of women's movements from the late eighteenth-century to the date of its publication. It describes economic, social and political ideas which have inspired women to organize, not only in Europe and North America, but also in the Third World. Sheila Rowbotham outlines a long history of women's challenges to the gender bias in political and economical concepts. She shows women laying claim to rights and citizenship, while contesting male definitions of their scope, and seeking to enlarge the meaning of economy through action around consumption and production, environmental protests and welfare projects." -- Provided by publisher

Dignity and daily bread : new forms of economic organising among poor women in the Third World and the First by Sheila Rowbotham( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dignity and Daily Bread compares the lives of women in the First and Third Worlds and examines how women have resisted and reorganised existing forms of production to create alternative, more humane circumstances of work and daily life. Covering a wide range of issues and areas, from street vendors of India and garment workers of Mexico to homeworkers of London, the contributors begin to break down some of the ideological barriers that colonialism and racism build among women. The immediacy of the accounts bring women's conditions in very different types of societies to life, and underlines the book's topicality in a time of global economic hardship
Beyond the fragments : feminism and the making of socialism by Sheila Rowbotham( Book )

40 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last decade has seen the women's movement gain strength among all classes of society. At the same time, the left has too often floundered, as fragmented groups of party liberals and leftists struggle against a growing right-wing trend. There's an important reason for all of this, say the authors. It lies in the very different structure of the women's movement as compared to that of most socialist organizations. This book shows what the left must learn if it is to become an effective force for grassroots change."--

Women resist globalization : mobilizing for livelihood and rights( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la couverture : "Globalization has intensified the pressures on poor women. They have resisited in both the North and the South in movements that are exclusively female or where women play a significant part. [This book] brings together scholars and organizers to record and analyse women's grassroots activism in two key areas : claims to livehood ans human rights. Opening with an historical account of differing facets of women's action for emancipation, this book goes on to look at more recent examples of diverse resistance : women fighting for environmental and reproductive rights, mobilizing against poverty and racism, fighting the inequalities imposed by structural adjustement programmes, and campaigning for human rights. Through cases ranging from the British miner's strike to making gender central to the Guatemalan peace process, the book documents activists challenging the boundaries of prevalling assumptions of work, environment, reproduction, community, democracy and indeed politics. It contribues to the ongoing debate about the scope of women's movements, while demonstrating how women's activism around needs and rights is a crucial element in the global struggle for equality and justice."
Women encounter technology : changing patterns of employment in the Third World by Swasti Mitter( Book )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays explores the effects of information technology on women's employment and the nature of women's work in the third world. Contributors discuss the challenges faced by women, along with their responses and organizing strategies, as they adjust to new technologies in less affluent communities. Also outlined are the roles that family, ideology, state policies and trade union structures can play in distributing information technology-related employment among women and men. Particular chapters highlight differences in the interests and needs of different groups of women, challenging the concept of a monolithic, specifically feminine vision of technology and science. The book provides a critique of postmodernism and ecofeminism and suggests ways in which modern technologies could promote gender equality in the developing world
