abstract This article examines the evolution of feminism as a set of ideas, a social movement and the impetus for interdisciplinary research. It draws attention to the influence of feminist scholarship across the disciplines, in the arena of public policy and legal reform, and in the establishment of gender and women’s studies programs and departments at universities worldwide. Feminism’s local roots and global reach, and the relations of theory to practice, are also highlighted.
