This collection of papers attempts to provide a comparative perspective on the US women's movement by presenting five papers sketching a broad portrait of the movement in the US and five more on women's movements elsewhere. The first set of papers discuss such topics as continuity and change from Second to Third Wave feminism, discursive politics in the Equal Rights Amendment campaign, the politics of decision making in the National Organization for Women (NOW), and grassroots organizing in local chapters of NOW. Editor Banaszak (political science and women's studies, The Pennsylvania State U.) then presents the comparative contributions, which examine political mobilization among African American women; the formation of the women' movements in the US and Chile; feminist organizing in the Russian Federation; trends in the Japanese and US movements; and framing of the issue of access to abortion in the US, England, and Ireland.
