Editorial Reviews

The essays compiled here address the questions "Where have we come from?" and "What characterizes feminism now?" In response to the contentious and splintering term "postfeminist," the editors strive to demonstrate that feminism lives by building on a wide-ranging body of feminist theory written by women.
