"Global Feminism features more than eight contemporary women artists, working in a wide variety of media, from fifty countries, each offering new perspectives on women's artistic expression in different regions of the world. This book moves the discourse of feminism art toward a new internationalism that emphasizes not only the cultural differences among women but also the ever changing perceptions of feminism."--Jacket.
