Description - Practising Feminism by Nickie Charles
In this book, contributors drawn from a range of backgrounds in anthropology, sociology and social psychology explore different ways of practising feminism and their effect on gendered identities. The contributors examine: feminism and gender differences between different countries; various diverse feminist practices; the call for recognition of heterosexuality as a politicized identity; the practical role of feminism in nationalist struggles; and methodological implications of feminist practices. They show women to be different, and that different structural influences come into play to make them different. But women are not so different that a feminist politics is invalid. the text should be a useful contribution to the middle-ground between post-modern deconstructions of difference and identity, and continued feminist concern with grounded power relations and the validity of experience.
