This important volume offers both a revised gendered
history of civil society and a program for making it more
egalitarian in the future. An interdisciplinary group of
internationally known authors investigates the
relationship between public and private in the discourses
and practices of civil societies; the significance of the
family for the project of civil society; the relation
between civil society, the state, and different forms of
citizenship; and the complex connection between civil
society, gendered forms of protest and nongovernmental
movements. While often critical of historical
instantiations of civil society, all the authors
nonetheless take seriously the potential inherent in
civil society, particularly as it comes to influence
global politics. They demand, however, an expansion of
both the concept and project of civil society in order to
make its political opportunities available to all.
