Sohela Nazneen and Maheen Sultan's Voicing Demands: Feminist Activism in Transitional Contexts, which is about to hit the shelves, has been hand-picked by the Guardian as one of the 'development books to look out for in 2014'.

Writing on the Poverty Matters Blog, Global Development deputy editor Liz Ford wrote:

'Another in the Zed Books series on Feminisms and Development, Voicing Demands examines the strategies feminist activists have employed to negotiate, organise and use their collective voice to effect change in the global south over the past two decades. Published in January, the book is edited by Sohela Nazneen and Maheen Sultan, both associated with the BRAC Development Institute in Bangladesh, and draws on essays on countries including Bangladesh, Brazil, Palestine, Egypt, Ghana and South Africa.'

Feminisms, Empowerment and Development: Changing Women's Lives, edited by Andrea Cornwall and Jenny Edwards and forthcoming from Zed Books in March, also received a mention.
