Beatrice’s latest book, Religion, Gender and Citizenship: Women of Faith, Gender Equality and Feminism (with Line Nyhagen, forthcoming 2016, Palgrave Macmillan), explores views and experiences of Christian and Muslim women living in Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom related to their faith, identities and citizenship. It also examines their views on gender equality, women’s movements and feminism.
Beatrice’s previous book, Majority-Minority Relations in Contemporary Women’s Movements: Strategic Sisterhood (also with Line Nyhagen Predelli; Palgrave Macmillan 2012), has been reviewed in numerous journals, including The Sociological Review, NORA - Nordic Journal of Women’s Studies, the International Journal of Iberian Studies and more (for links to and excerpts from reviews, click here. The book compares and contrasts contemporary women’s movements in Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom, with particular attention to relations between ethnic majority and ethnic minority women and politics.
Beatrice’s last edited book, Remaking Citizenship in Multicultural Europe: Women's Movements, Gender and Diversity (with Sasha Roseneil and Sevil Sümer; Palgrave Macmillan 2012) develops an expanded, multi-dimensional understanding of citizenship as practice and experience, and offers a ground-breaking analysis of how women's movements have been involved in changing citizenship in contemporary Europe.
