Feminist Theory 3 (3):295-314 (2002)

The article interrogates transnational feminisms as a concept and as a practice. It frames its analysis using contemporary theories of globalization and the older concept of global sisterhood as a backdrop to the concept of transnational feminism. To assess the practical dimension of transnational feminisms, the analysis focuses on women's rights as a human rights movement and the transnationalization of Latin American feminisms. The article suggests that, although transnational feminisms envision themselves in a new frame and see themselves as committed to intersectional analysis and transversal politics, there are important gaps between the intentions and outcomes of their theory and practice.
