Description - Working Feminism by Geraldine Pratt

This is an examination of the key concepts and debates that have defined feminist scholarship since the 1990s - the possibilities, for example, of working with universalist principles, and the need to inflect multiculturalism with postcolonial perspectives - and considers where they go when we think about them geographically. Theoretical and empirical chapters alternate with each other: the latter put the concepts to work introduced in the former in relation to the real problems faced by immigrant women in Canada. Substantial and wide-ranging discussions of human rights and feminist politics are thus brought to earth and - by putting them into the context of individual predicaments - to life. The book demonstrates the immediate practicality of abstract debate, and works away at divisions between culturalist and materialist, theoretical and practical feminisms.
