"My purpose in this book is to show that third-wave feminism must go beyond the dualisms of global and local and of theory and practice," says DeKoven, who distinguishes "third wave" feminism from the Western-focused second wave of feminism that emerged during the 1970s and also from the first wave of feminism defined by the women's suffrage movement of an earlier century.
"I wanted to show -- and not in some mediating, peacemaking way -- that inevitably you can't see these dualisms as opposing. You have to view them as mutually dependent, mutually informing."
