'This is an exciting book that is actively seeking to change narratives of women's embodied sexual lives. While candidly revealing the contradictions and tensions it also celebrates women's ability to transcend boundaries and normative prescriptions of sexualities in diverse places.'
Wendy Harcourt, Erasmus University
'This is a refreshingly authentic collection, by and about inspiring women, from diverse contexts and cultures of the world. Accounts of sexualities, political repressions and women's agencies are woven together to provoke, fascinate, challenge and stimulate. This is a most welcome, timely and valuable publication, which deserves a wide readership - not least among policy makers. Kudos to all its contributors.'
Alice Welbourn, Salamander Trust
'What a rich tapestry of feminist analyses of sexuality and gender! This genuinely transnational collection is for those seeking to explore the changing configurations of power and heteronormativity, but also the possibilities of women's agency and action from the angle of the Global South. A wonderful resource for scholars, activists, and students.'
Jyoti Puri, Simmons College
'Uncovering both the differences and the continuities in discourses around women's sexualities, emerging from varied geographical perspectives, these insightful accounts are an excellent critical contribution to research into gender and sexualities in the global South.'
