There is a good deal of literature on new transnational social movements, especially those opposing globalization, particularly free trade. There is also broad literature regarding the consequences by gender of neoliberal restructuring, but literature on transnational organizing of women to resist free trade integration schemes is scarce. This article addresses the issue from the perspective of the Women's Committee within the Hemispheric Social Alliance and the Mesoamerican Women in Resistance. It highlights the hindrances these movements encounter within their own mixed coalitions and within the broader women's and feminist movements.
