Feminism has attained a critical momentum from which there is no turning back. To demonstrate why this is so, this groundbreaking book explores how feminism emerged historically, as well as how contemporary feminists address women's issues. "No Turning Back" begins with the world before feminism, looking cross-culturally at the origins of gender inequality. It then moves on to explain the emergence of western feminism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. As feminism has gradually expanded from the west to the rest of the world, it has repeatedly re-invented itself, adding women's issues to almost all national political agendas. Finally, the book considers modern feminist approaches to work, family, sexuality, creativity, and politics.

Drawing examples from a variety of countries and cultures, from the past as well as from the present, this inspiring narrative will be required reading for anyone who wishes to understand women's place in the world -- yesterday, today and tomorrow.
