Historical framework. Selections are organized into five historical periods from the 18th century to the mid-1990s. While most anthologies are organized around ideological themes, this text's historical format allows the reader to approach each selection without pre-existing ideological labels or assumptions.
Lexicon of the Debates. Clear, concise explanations of 12 key concepts that characterize the development of feminist thought since its inception. The lexicon furnishes students with a vocabulary of important feminist theory terms, and puts that vocabulary in context.
Inclusion of manifestoes. Key feminist manifestoes help students see the link between feminist theory and application.
Continuity within diversity. Readings present feminist thought, from its inception, as the province of women of different races, classes, nationalities, sexualities, etc. Selections demonstrate the continuity in feminist theory discussions.
Inside and Outside Perspectives. Readings include feminist theory developed within Anglo-American colleges and universities as well as texts from non-Anglo-Americans and examples of feminist theorizing outside the academy.
Approximately 12% new readings.
Provides more emphasis on modern feminism, while still providing an historical context.
