Prof. Hernández-Truyol reviews the book Gender Politics in Global Governance from editors Mary K. Meyer and Elisabeth Prügl. Given the emergence of multilateral institutions in this century, the mobilization of women against "male supremacy" has taken an internationalist turn; it seeks to shape "the agendas of international organizations and the normative practices of global governance." In an effort to understand and analyze this movement and its impact, the editors have compiled a volume drawing new research together exploring gender politics in global governance that is also "attentive to historical and contemporary modes of women's organizing from the local to the global levels to effect change in the governance structures and practices that oppress women."

Keywords: Gender politics, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, Gender and transnational democracy, Women's NGOs and the U.N., Women and globalization
