"Women Organising" is the first study to bring organization theory and the real-life experiences of women organizing together. Helen Brown uses the example of the Greystone Women's Centre in Britain to illustrate the struggles of women seeking to manage without becoming bureaucratized, to find a sense of direction without relying on leaders, to participate fully as leaders, and above all, to create a truly collective form of organization.

Industry Reviews

"The story of Greystone's Women's Centre is both interesting in its own right and a symbol of the alternative forms of organization women have tried to build since the 1960s. The lessons from this story will be salutory for those working in organizational theory, for the critique of those theories which accompanies the story . . . is thorough and convincing." -Sara Delamont, University of Cardiff
