This book offers a ground-breaking analysis of how women’s movements have been remaking citizenship in multicultural Europe and develops an expanded, multi-dimensional understanding of citizenship as practice and experience. Remaking Citizenship pays particular attention to processes of racialization and minoritization as they impact upon, and construct, citizenship and women’s movements in contemporary Europe.
The book develops answers to two vital questions – what difference have women’s movements and feminism made to experiences and practices of citizenship, and how can we assess the state of citizenship in contemporary Europe from the perspective of women, particularly minoritized women?
