Overview

Examining feminism through the lens of Albert Camus's ethic of rebellion, Elizabeth Bartlett provides a significant new interpretation of both philosophies, revealing valuable insights, strategies, and inspiration to grapple with the issues of our day. Identifying four core components of the ethic of rebellion to provide a framework through which disparate strands of feminist theory, ethics, and spirituality can cohere and become useful, Bartlett shows how feminist thought has developed and elucidated the meanings and implications of key concepts of rebellion. Bartlett offers here a hopeful vision of a joyous, life-affirming ethic of "rebellious feminism" that resists oppression and injustice and affirms human dignity, justice and solidarity.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Placing feminist thought in dialogue with Camus' ethic of rebellion, Bartlett uncovers an 'auspicious coincidence' that will be a boon to philosophers, political scientists, social movement theorists, and feminists alike. Camus' rebellion is a strategy for resisting oppression while affirming a politics of justice and beauty, friendship and healing. With passionate clarity, Bartlett's Rebelious Feminism describes a way to live decently in the world."--Greta Gaard, Ph.D., author of Ecological Politics: Ecofeminists and the Greens, editor of Ecofeminism: Women, Animals, Nature and co-editor of Ecofeminist Literary Criticism
"Elizabeth Bartlett has found an 'auspicious coincidence' between feminism and Camus's rebellion against an absurd world begging for meaning. Both feminism and Camus plead for a just world in which love can thrive. Rebellion is not simply about the rejection of oppression but the affirmation of human dignity. Bartlett's illuminating analysis of Camus has helped me better appreciate feminism's message about empowering and freeing oneself within the limits of one's circumstances. Even if we cannot, as Camus writes, '...prevent the world from being a world in which children are tortured...we can reduce the number of tortured children...'" (Camus, The Rebel, 30)-- Rosemarie Tong, PhD, Director, Center for Professional and Applied Ethics, Distinguished Professor in Health Care Ethics, Department of Philosophy, UNC Charlotte
