Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This is radical feminist theory at its best: clear, careful and critical." Signs

Review:

"Only those who wish to remain ignorant of contemporary feminist themes, pursued here by a thinker of an unusual cast of mind, can afford to neglect a careful reading of the essays collected in the present volume." Ethics, An International Journal of Social, Political and Legal Philosophy

Review:

"For anyone first coming to feminism, these essays serve as a backdrop...for understanding the basic, early and continuing perspectives of feminists. And for all of us they provide a theoretical framework in which to read the present as well as the past." Women's Review of Books

Review:

"Frye makes a concerted effort to stimulate discussion, as opposed to arguing unopposed, so that much of the work is novel and candid. Such a volume should be viewed as providing an alternative to mainstream liberal feminism." Choice

About the Author

Marilyn Frye teaches Philosophy, writes, and engages in housework and home maintenance. She has helped run a bookstore, worked in Women's Studies, helped run a lesbian center and is a partner in a small press. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1941, Frye has lived in the Midwest, on both coasts and in Western Canada. She grew up as the youngest of two daughters in a stable, traditional (but remarkably nonviolent), devoutly Christian family. The author got her Bachelor's degree from Stanford University in 1963, and her Doctorate at Cornell University in 1969, both in Philosophy.
