Only Paradoxes to Offer by Joan W. Scott
Book DescriptionWhen feminists argued for political rights in the context of liberal democracy they faced an impossible choice. On the one hand, they insisted that the differences between men and women were irrelevant for citizenship. On the other hand, by acting on behalf of women, they introduced the very idea of difference they sought to eliminate. In this book, the award-winning historian Joan Wallach Scott reads feminist history in terms of this paradox of sexual difference.

Books By Author Joan W. Scott
Parite!, Paperback (December 2005)
France is in the throes of a crisis defined by the rhetoric of a universalism that takes the abstract individual to be the representative not only of citizens but also of the nation. In this book, the author shows how the requirement for abstraction has led to the exclusion of women from French politics.
Gender and the Politics of History, Paperback (November 1999)
Exploring such topics from language and gender to the politics of work and family, this text offers a contribution to the exploration of how gender can be used as a category of cultural and historical analysis.
Transitions, Environments, Translations, Hardback (July 1997)
Explores the varied meanings of feminism in different political, cultural and historical contexts. Scholars from various countries provide documentation of different political and cultural initiatives, and they explore the terms by which successful collaborations might be made.
Reason's Muse, Paperback (March 1994)» View all books by Joan W. Scott
The French Revolution proclaimed the equality of all human beings, yet women remained less than equal in the new society. The exclusion of women at the birth of modern democracy required considerable justification. This book traces the course of this reasoning through early 19th-century texts.
