This book reconstructs the little-known history of those political struggles women launched in Asia and the Middle East from the late 19th century onwards. The author challenges the view that feminism is a foreign ideology currently being imposed on Third World countries. She also brings back into the mainstream of history those women who played a part in the national liberation and revolutionary movements of their countries.
