"Gender, Ethnicity and Political Ideologies" presents a broad range of international case studies such as inter-ethnic conflict in Yugoslavia, the emergence of a "male democracy" in Chile, the lack of equal rights for women in Israel, the role of women in the French far right's ideology and the sense of empowerment that Islam gives to many young Muslim women in Britain. Also included is an analysis of nationalist ideologies that can divide women from each other and define their role in reproductive terms.
This is a challenging study that asserts the importance of a feminist politics which enables women to understand and work with each other across the boundaries that so effectively divide them. It will be essential reading for those in search of a rigorous analysis of the role and significance of women in a rapidly changing political landscape.
