520    "From Eleanor Roosevelt to feminist icon Gloria Steinem to
       HIV/AIDS activist Dazon Dixon Diallo, women have assumed 
       leadership roles in struggles for social justice. How did 
       these remarkable women ascend to positions of influence? 
       And once in power, what leadership strategies did they use
       to deal with various challenges? Junctures in Women's 
       Leadership: Social Movements explores these questions by 
       introducing twelve women who have spearheaded a wide array
       of social movements that span the 1940s to the present, 
       working for indigenous peoples' rights, gender equality, 
       reproductive rights, labor advocacy, environmental justice,
       and other causes. The women profiled here work in a 
       variety of arenas across the globe: Planned Parenthood CEO
       Cecile Richards, New York City labor organizer Bhairavi 
       Desai, women's rights leader Charlotte Bunch, feminist 
       poet Audre Lorde, civil rights activists Daisy Bates and 
       Aileen Clarke Hernandez, Kenyan environmental activist 
       Wangari Maathai, Nicaraguan revolutionary Mirna Cunningham,
       and South African public prosecutor Thuli Madonsela. What 
       unites them all is the way these women made sacrifices, 
       asked critical questions, challenged injustice, and 
       exhibited the will to act in the face of often-harsh 
       criticism and violence. The case studies in Junctures in 
       Women's Leadership: Social Movements demonstrate the 
       diversity of ways that women around the world have 
       practiced leadership, in many instances overcoming rigid 
       cultural expectations about gender. Moreover, the cases 
       provide a unique window into the ways that women leaders 
       make decisions at moments of struggle and historical 
       change."--Publisher's web site.
