Gender of Power by Professor Kathy Davis

Book Description

Drawing on feminist theories of women's oppression and on social theories of power, this book offers original analyses of the relationship between gender and power. The Gender of Power presents a critique of feminist theories of power as simply top-down models of the oppression of women. The authors argue that this notion presents women as passive victims and ignores the diversity and complexity of women's experiences. The ideas on power of Bourdieu, Giddens, Lukes and Foucault are also evaluated in terms of their usefulness in explaining relations between men and women, which can often be covert, consensual and intimate.

Postcolonial Masculinities by Professor Kathy Davis Postcolonial Masculinities, Hardback (November 2013)

By concentrating on the shared ground of postcolonial, masculine subjectivities, Postcolonial Masculinities looks beyond the dissonance often iterated between the apparently rational Western man and the apparently oppressive, patriarchal Middle Eastern man.

Repudiating Feminism by Professor Kathy Davis Repudiating Feminism, Hardback (May 2012)

Gender equality is a widely shared value in many western societies and yet, the mention of the term feminism frequently provokes unease, bewilderment or overt hostility. This book sheds light on why this is the case. It explores how young German and British women think, talk and feel about feminism.

Transatlantic Conversations by Professor Kathy Davis Transatlantic Conversations, Hardback (July 2011)

Examining the meaning and implications of the different ways in which various shared categories have been treated on both sides of the Atlantic, this title both analyses differences within feminism and provides a framework for the wider discussion of what is sometimes assumed to be the homogeneity of The West.
