Cassandra Balchin argues that globalization has facilitated the growth of identity politics as well as a transnational feminist response. The international network of information, solidarity and support, Women Living Under Muslim Laws, links groups and individuals in Muslim countries and communities in order to strengthen their local struggles and individual women's pursuit of autonomy. Its cross-boundary sharing of the lived experience of women, and the diversities and similarities of these experiences, has crystallized new ways of thinking around culture, identity and women's rights among networkers and their allies beyond Muslim countries and communities.Development (2002) 45, 126–131. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110331
