'This collection provides a rich and textured set of portraits of women struggling for justice around the globe. It gives feminists inspiration for their theorising and at the same time theoretical insights for their activism.'
Hilary Charlesworth, Professor and Director, Centre for International and Public Law, Faculty of Law, Australian National University
'This is contemporary feminism par excellence. It provides inspirational accounts of women's activism that add significantly to knowledge and at the same time constitutes a major challenge to understandings and practices of justice. The book will be a significant turning point in feminist criminology in Australia. It fractures the boundaries of the discipline and challenges basic understandings. At the same time it is inspirational reading about women's struggles for justice across the globe.'
Associate Professor Christine Alder, Department of Criminology, University of Melbourne
'This timely collection highlights the urgent need for effective strategies to support the agency of women. These testing critical engagements with diverse forms of women's activism test the limits and possibilities of concepts such as 'feminism' and 'sisterhood' in ways that are both productive and cautionary.'
Dr Maryanne Dever, Director, Centre for Women's Studies and Gender Research, Monash University
Global Issues, Women and Justice explores the ways women seek justice through the nation-state, global process and international criminal justice mechanisms. It draws on a diversity of academic and advocate voices in examining how women have accessed justice under conditions of globalisation, militarization and colonisation. Global Issues, Women and Justice will appeal to academics and activists as a valuable resource for research and provides numerous case studies of the ways women have mobilised to achieve justice which will be useful in both the classroom and in campaigning. Editors, Sharon Pickering, Monash University, Caroline Lambert, Human Rights Activist
