“A key figure of the second wave.”–Melissa Benn, The Guardian

This classic book provides a historical overview of feminist strands among the modern revolutionary movements of Russia, China and the Third World. Sheila Rowbotham shows how women rose against the dual challenges of an unjust state system and social-sexual prejudice. Women, Resistance and Revolution is an invaluable historical study, as well as a trove of anecdote and example fit to inspire today’s generation of feminist thinkers and activists.

Reviews

“Rowbotham is one of Britain's most important, if unshowy, feminist thinkers, and a key figure of the second wave.”

“Sheila's early writing paved the way for feminist thought and scholarship in Britain.”
