Description - Feminism and Politics by Revd Dr Anne Phillips

The "Oxford Readings in Feminism" series provides accessible, one-volume guides to contemporary feminist thinking, assessing its impact and importance in key areas of study. The articles chosen represent important work on feminist issues, and concise introductions to each volume crystallize the main line of debate in the field. Is there too much gender in politics, too much stereotyping of female and male? Or is there too little gender, too little attention to differences between women and men? Should feminists be challenging male dominance by opening up politics to women? Or is "women" a fictitious entity that fails to address differences by class or race? Is equality best served by denying differences between the sexes? Or best promoted by stressing the special needs of women? The essays in "Feminism and Politics" answer these questions in a variety of ways, but all see feminism as transforming the way we think about and act in politics. Spanning issues of citizenship and political representation, the ambiguities of identity politics, and the problems in legislating for sexual equality, the readings provide an overview of recent developments.
