Description - Feminist Theory by Ann E. Cudd
Feminist Theory: A Philosophical Anthology addresses seven philosophically significant questions regarding feminism, its central concepts of sex and gender, and the project of centering women's experience. The volume's well-chosen essays contemplate the nature of sexist oppression; the sex/gender distinction; how gender-based norms influence conceptions of rationality, knowledge, and scientific objectivity; feminist ethics; feminist perspectives on self and autonomy; whether there exist distinct feminine moral perspectives; and what would comprise true liberation. With its introductory overview illustrating the development of feminism as a philosophical movement, this book can serve as a useful text in any philosophy course as well as a stand-alone text for a course in feminist theory.
