Radical Feminism Today

First Edition


April 2001 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Radical Feminism Today offers a timely and engaging account of exactly what feminism is, and what it is not. Denise Thompson questions much of what has come to be taken for granted as `feminism' and points to the limitations of implicitly defining feminism in terms of `women', `gender', `difference' or `race/gender/class'. She challenges some of the most widely accepted ideas about feminism and in doing so opens up a number of hitheto closed debates, allowing for the possibility of moving those debates further.
