Changing Narratives of Sexuality examines the tensions and
contradictions in constructions of gender, sexuality and women's
empowerment in the various narrations of sexuality told by and about
women. From storytelling to women's engagement with state institutions,
stories of unmarried women and ageing women, a sex scandal and
narrations of religious influence on women's subjectivities and
sexualities, this impressive collection explores sexuality in a wide
range of national contexts in the global South. The authors analyse what
scope exists for women to subvert repressive norms and conceptions of
heterosexuality, interweaving rich, contextual detail with theoretical
'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
Dr Wendy Harcourt, Associate Professor of Critical Development and Feminist Studies, ISS, 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.'
Dr Alice Welbourn, Founding Director of the 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, Professor of Sociology, Simmons College, Boston
'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.'
Dr Helen Scanlon, Head of Gender Studies, University of Cape Town, South Africa
