"The idea of feminism being everywhere and nowhere is a perfect description of the contemporary movement. Jo Reger provides badly needed new data on a movement that is still very much alive. By looking at three contemporary communities of feminists, Reger shows how feminism is practiced and shaped within different political and cultural contexts. This book is an extremely welcome addition to the literature on contemporary feminism."--Suzanne Staggenborg, Professor of Sociology, University of Pittsburgh
"Contesting multiple myths circulating in popular culture, Everywhere and Nowhere documents the nuances and diverse contexts of feminism in the contemporary era. Exploring the factors that contribute to its flourishing and the manifold forms feminism takes, Jo Reger paints a rich portrait of vibrant modes of activism that transform identities, communities, and cultural values."--Mary Hawkesworth, Professor, Department of Women's and Gender Studies, Rutgers University
