Women's human rights networking has also faced criticisms of its efforts to find a common articulation of women's concerns or a common basis for women's organizing. Some argue that to do so is to universalize the category of "woman" and to impose a limited agenda on all women on the basis of the experience of some usually white, middle-class, and living in the global North. As women's movements have grown over the past three decades, grassroots and professional activists and academics have had unprecedented opportunities for dialogue around gender based oppression.
