More About This Textbook


This wide-ranging book responds to and moves beyond recent debates about the relationship between feminism and politics to offer a vision for the future of feminist theory. Leading figures have combined to offer a broad framework through which to articulate a 'new democracy' - one that transgresses the traditional oppositions of equality and difference, sex and gender, essential and constructed, to view the 'political' as complex, layered and relational.

Issues addressed include: gender, ethnicity, culture and sexual orientation, always embracing the multiple terrains and spaces produced by politics.
