"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. Topics of this title include 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. This title features an introductory overview illustrating the development of feminism as a philosophical movement. It contains both classic and contemporary sources of feminist thought, including selections by Mary Wollstonecraft, John Stuart Mill, Simone de Beauvior, Kate Millett, bell hooks, Marilyn Frye, Martha Nussbaum, Louise Antony, Sally Haslanger, Helen Longino, Marilyn Friedman, Catharine MacKinnon, and Drucilla Cornell.
