Based on first-hand narratives that combine the experience and analyses of feminist activist-researchers across four continents, this book departs from the existing debates on women's participation in formal institutions in favour of a more radical political engagement. Voicing Demands offers an investigation of how feminist activism builds strong constituencies through legitimizing women's voices in different contexts and the impact of these strategies and processes on women's citizenship.
