First, I shall examine the relationship between western feminists and third world women,using an overview of the literature on difference and identity in the last two decades of feminist engagement with postcolonial and multicultural discourses. Next,I shall examine the rhetoric and writing of young feminists in the Asian context After examining the issues and concerns of the new generation of Asian women,I will examine the possibility of a transnationalthird wave feminist movement and the effects it may have on local communities.This project seeks to initiate a platfonn for dialogue between western and Asian feminist scholars so that we may build stronger transnational alliances.
