From the Publisher
'The Woman of Reason is an imaginative and compelling commentary on the origins and role of feminism in contributing to a more egalitarian and caring world. This clear-headed, humane and controversial book deserves consideration and discussion by everyone concerned with the ways in which forms of knowledge can contribute to the oppression or the liberation of people, women in particular.'
UCG Women's Studies Centre Review
'The insistence on women's history and their participation in the construction of culture and society is a welcome antidote to accounts of universal oppression.' Women's Philosophy Review
'The book stands as a provocative contribution to liberal feminist political theory, which is likely to generate ongoing debate.' Australasian Journal of Philosophy
