Book Summary

In this special issue of the Journal of International Women's Studies, the Feminist and Women's Studies Association (FWSA) is pleased to present the winner and shortlisted entries from it's annual student essay competition. The FWSA was founded in 1987 by a group of women who were dedicated to researching and talking about women's lives. As well as being a proactive presence around feminist issues in the political, social and cultural sphere, the FWSA sponsors a biennial international conference, a postgraduate seminar series, as well as a celebrated book prize which recognises innovation across disciplines in feminist and women's studies. The student essay competition is an opportunity for early career academics to enhance, extend and challenge feminist debates. Each year, the competition attracts ambitious and talented individuals who deserve commendation for their participation and efforts in developing and pushing the boundaries of women's studies through imaginative themes and interesting debate. Seemingly anticipating the popular protests in Tunisia and Egypt with which this year began, many of the essays in this special issue turn to the question of resistance--one that has arguably been neglected in the feminist focus on uncovering and theorising contexts of oppression. In an uncertain moment of large-scale socio-political transformation, forms of resistance have also changed demanding new conceptions of political agency and indeed, new understandings of the political itself. Through close ethnographic and textual readings of women's everyday lives, these essays begin to map what feminist philosopher, Patricia S. Mann has called a gendered 'micro-politics' embracing diverse forms of intersectional agency and activism.
