Overview

In Gender Inequality: Feminist Theories and Politics, Fourth Edition, internationally renowned feminist Judith Lorber examines various, evolving theories of gender inequality. Tightly structured around Lorber's own paradigm of "reform, resistance, rebellion," this combination text/reader acknowledges feminism's significant contributions to redressing gender inequality and celebrates its enormous accomplishments over the last forty years. It also documents feminism's ongoing political activism, and, with an awareness of postmodern and third-wave trends, points toward its future.

Significantly rewritten, reorganized, and updated, the fourth edition features seventeen new readings and new sections on feminism in China, India, South Korea, and Japan. In addition, the bulleted lists that introduce each type of feminism now include a critique as well as that particular feminism's theories on the sources of gender inequality, its politics, and its contributions.

An accessible, engaging classic written by one of sociology's first feminists, Gender Inequality: Feminist Theories and Politics, Fourth Edition, is an ideal undergraduate and graduate text for courses in introductory feminism, feminist theory, and women's studies.
