Overview

Women's Studies: Essential Readings provides a comprehensive selection of over 140 readings in women's studies, representing the diversity of current feminist thinking. The collection introduces readers to the work of many influential thinkers in women's studies, and allows them to experience the richness and the depth of work being done in the field. The book has been designed to foster and facilitate further exploration of feminist issues. The book's fourteen sections reflect such primary topics within women's studies as feminist social theory; psychological and psychoanalytic theory; cross-cultural perspectives and historical perspectives. They explore such themes as education and work; marriage and motherhood; sexuality; the law; crime and deviance; politics and the state; science, medicine and reproductive technology; language and gender; feminist literary criticism; and the media.
