Shamillah Wilson and Anasuya Sengupta write of being ‘20-something, big on dreams, touched by nightmares, living our lives in honest confusion and mundane struggle’ (p. 1). Negotiating international identities on the world stage, they write how the big issues of globalisation, war, conflict, poverty, violence and HIV/AIDS mean that ‘it is hardly surprising that nightmares jostle with dreams’ (p. 2). Our. dreamings are, as Sengupta puts it, ‘a form of planning’ that occurs when one trusts the potential of intuitive, imaginative, idealistic dreams (p. 122).

'You're either with us or against us: the challenge of increasing political polarization in the 21st century for young feminists' .

Like the celebrations around the world on March 8, these three books remind us that long before the global justice movements, often called the antiglobalization movements, there were the global women's movements and the global feminist movements.

This book brings together analyses by feminists of diverse identities on themes including women's rights and economic change, new technologies, sexuality, feminist organizations and movements. It presents key issues arising out of the experiences of young women living in both North and South, the challenges confronting young feminists, and the agenda for a new era of feminist leadership and activism.
Comments to eBook Defending Our Dreams: Global Feminist Voices for a New Generation
KiddenDan
Defending Our Dreams is one of the most informative and enjoyable readings I've had to do for a course so far. The structure of the book, with chapter submitted by many different contributors on many different topics, makes it easy to come and go from, with something to offer everyone. I feel I've learned a lot, and have gained a much better understanding of present global developments in feminism (I was particularly impressed by the interviews with male feminists in South Africa!).

I bought this for my Feminist Activism class and I really enjoyed it. There were some great stories in this book. However, a lot of them were pretty difficult to read as far as interest and word usage goes.
Monam
I bought this as a student for a class, and it was one of the most accessible women's studies texts I've used. The essays and stories are relatable, and make themes clear.

_Defending Our Dreams_ provides a strong addition to the growing genre of books/anthologies authored by the "next generation" of feminists or third wave activists.

The book is well-written and includes important discussion about the importance of activism, case studies, discussion about economics, male feminists, and ends with a strong essay about feminist activism in the future. The last entry, a poem, is also provocative and ties up the volume well.

I'm using sections from the book in three different courses this term and a few of the student who have already read the sections have shared that they enjoyed the chapters.

For my own research purposes, the sections on ICTs and Cyberfeminism were the most useful. The book is written for an academic audience and is probably most useful for undergraduates. That said, I think a lay audience would enjoy the material.
