Description - Formations of Class & Gender by Beverly Skeggs

This text argues that class should be featured more prominently in feminist accounts of identity and power, explaining that class and gender must be fused together to produce an accurate picture of power relations in modern society. It uses detailed ethnographic research to demonstrate how women challenge, modify and reformulate understandings of subjectivity, class, heterosexuality, femininity and feminism and explore the relevance of social positioning and cultural representation. The book also re-engages in debates about class from a perspective which includes subjectivity, gender and sexuality.
