This is a collection of essays examining the position of women in society today. It seeks to challenge the myth that women are out in the world working on the same terms as men, as well as the myth of the domesticated man. It also dissects the process of the dismantling of gender and the return to a naive masculinist understanding of women's place. Finally, it challenges the idea of women as a universal category, arguing instead for a recognition of multiple social groups in which women exist in different political regimes and cultural identities. The contributors are: Parminder Bhachu; Carol Gilligan; Jack Goody; Susan Heath; Carolyn Heilbrun; Juliet Mitchell; Ann Oakley; Patrizia Romito; Joanna Ryan; Ahneta Stark; Margaret Walters; Peggy Watson; and Nira Yuval-Davis.
