A turning point in feminist theory, The Aftermath of Feminism will set a new agenda for gender studies and cultural studies.
Best book on the topic and it worked brilliantly for my class.
A really fascinating and provocative text, makes me wish we did more gender studies in our PR teaching!
I am hoping that this book will be a valuable resource for my students when they are trying to understand concepts of female agency, the body and beauty practices. It is quite comprehensive but the level of scholarship/theory remains high which is a difficult balancing act. The examples make this book quite accessible, but the discussion of theory is complex and demanding, so I will be interested to see how readable my students find it.
