About the books: 
Governance Feminism shows how some feminists and feminist ideas have entered into state and state-like power in recent years. Collecting examples from the U.S., Israel, India, and from transnational human rights law, the authors argue that governance feminism is institutionally diverse and globally distributed—emerging from grassroots activism as well as statutes and treaties, as crime control and as immanent bureaucracy.


Governance Feminism: Notes from the Field amasses nineteen chapters from leading feminist scholars and activists to critically describe and assess contemporary feminist engagements with state and state-like power. Providing a clear, cross-cutting, critical lens to map developments in feminist governance around the world, the book makes sense of the costs and benefits of current feminist realities to reimagine feminist futures.
