Description - Feminist Social Work Theory and Practice by Lena Dominelli

Feminist theories of social work have been criticized for treating women as a uniform category and displaying insufficient sensitivity to the complex ways in which other social divisions (those of race, age, disability, etc.) impact on gender relations. This text seeks to develop a new framework for feminist social work that takes on board postmodernist arguments to do with difference and power yet retains a commitment to collective solidarity and social change. As such, it should be useful reading for students, educators and practitioners alike in social work.
