Sisterhood Is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology is a feminist anthology edited by Robin Morgan, published by Anchor Press/Doubleday in 1984. Sisterhood Is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology is the follow up to Sisterhood is Powerful: An Anthology of Writings From The Women's Liberation Movement. After Sisterhood Is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology came its follow-up, Sisterhood Is Forever: The Women's Anthology for a New Millennium.
Morgan was awarded Ford Foundation Grants in 1982, 1983, and 1984 to help fund work on Sisterhood Is Global: The International Women's Movement Anthology.
