Dissident Friendships

This chapter proposes an approach called “transcultural feminist solidarity” in order to address the issue of women's solidarity in the context of cultural differences and globalization. It specifies what this approach is through assessing various feminist approaches to women's solidarity and by using the example of how this approach can help to forge friendship and solidarity between Chinese and U.S. women. To demonstrate how a new solidarity can emerge from this transcultural approach, the chapter shows how the approach is needed to conceptualize collaboration among women in different cultures; for instance, it can help us to understand the relationship between U.S. feminism and Chinese feminism.
