Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Feminism and the New Democracy responds to and moves beyond recent debates about the relationship between feminism and politics to offer a vision for the future of feminist theory. Leading figures have combined to offer a broad framework through which to articulate the new democracyuone that transgresses the traditional oppositions of equality and difference, sex and gender, and essential and constructed, to view the political as complex, layered, and relational. This volume offers a multifaceted backdrop of theory and analysis against which new debate may flourish. The individual chapters address questions around gender, ethnicity, culture, and sexual orientation, always embracing the multiple terrains and spaces producing and produced by politics. It will be invaluable for students and academics in feminist and critical social theory, womenAEs studies, gender and cultural studies, philosophy, and politics.
