The dramatic contribution of grassroots organizations to effecting social change is brought into vivid detail in this unique perspective on women from around the globe. Each contributor has been instrumental in grassroots processes of media production or has worked within the community communication field and discusses concrete action within a theoretical framework. These diverse accounts of women, participation and communication take place in a variety of geographical, social and cultural settings and provide rich material for comparative analysis.
