The second wave of feminism which challenged and changed many assumptions was a product of various western cultures, with no single country possessing a monopoly on the writing of 'new' feminism. Though many of the contributions hailed from Europe and the United States, these works were often formed within local debates and framed within feminist traditions and political engagements specific to these nations. Transatlantic Conversations explores the differences yielded by such conditions and their consequences for the meaning of feminism.
