A Global Documentary Reader
"This extensive, rich, and diverse anthology of collective feminist declarations is a vital source for understanding the long, global history of feminism."
—Estelle B. Freedman, Author of No Turning Back and The Essential Feminist Reader
"This inspiring collection is breathtaking in its originality and daring in its premise. Reading the words collectively authored when feminists come together in struggle conveys the passion that inspires activism. Feminists thinking together in these manifestos provide hopeful and energizing answers to the question of what feminism is, challenging the categories and waves into which such variety is often awkwardly packaged."
—Myra Marx Ferree, Author of Varieties of Feminism: German Gender Politics In Global Perspective
"Feminist Manifestos provides an impressive and unprecedented archive of feminist activism. This rich compendium includes feminist petitions, manifestos, resolutions, charters and declarations from fifty countries, starting in 1642 and ending in 2017. Each selection is accompanied by informative introductions. I’ve been waiting for a book like this and can’t wait to assign it in my courses."
—Amrita Basu, Author of Violent Conjunctures in Democratic India
