Changing Cultures brings together a selection of challenging essays which have their roots in the fertile convergence of feminism, sociology and cultural studies.

Themes include the assessment of feminist theory, its transformations and its ability to illuminate issues and practices.

It goes on to investigate child sexual abuse in relation to problems of interpretation
