Iratxe Perea Ozerin

The anti-globalization movement has, since the 1990s, been the main expo­nent of international resistance against cap­italism, and the feminist movement has been an essential actor in this transnational net­work. Research into the way in which femi­nism participates in the global movement, and taking into account the international context shaping both struggles, highlights, on the one hand, the contributions made by feminist theory and practice to anti-capital­ist thinking and struggle and, on the other, the opportunities and challenges that this participation in the anti-globalization arena represents for the feminist movement.

Key words: feminism, anti-globalization movement, transnational social movements, feminist economics, anti-capitalism
