Elife Biçer-Deveci interprets the relationship of the international women’s movement in its early stage with methods of the entangled history and brings the perspective of Ottoman-Turkish feminists to the fore. Thereby, she highlights ambiguities and cultural communication problems in the history of this relationship. Beyond of that, the author subjects the narrative of feminist orientalism in current research to a critical revision. She includes the role of the nation-state Turkey in the relationship of feminists. Thus, the book deepens our knowledge about complex processes of intercultural understanding and of gender order as structural principles of the global modern era.
