Description - Feminist Theory Today by Judy Evans
This exploration of the theories of contemporary feminism covers all the major variants of feminist political thought, from the "traditional" schools of the women's movement - particularly radical, liberal and socialist - to today's postmodern texts. It also examines: the epistemological challenge from critical legal theory and postmodern thought; the divergences within, as well as between, feminist schools; and the protests from women marginalized by the feminist movement, including those who are lesbian or black. This work seeks to interrogate the dialectic of equality and difference, and reconceptualize this pervasive tenet of feminist thought. In addition, it documents the changes in socialist feminism from its revolutionary origins to its current focus on modifying liberal democratic forms.
