  1. Feminism

    New York : Novinka, [2013]

    This book explores the history and contemporary rise and consolidation of Feminism. Mainstream social theory is said to represent a partial and incomplete view of society and social relations. Such is the power of this critique that any theory which seeks to chart the contemporary terrain of society itself will itself be incomplete without due consideration being given to Feminism and its main themes and ideas. Feminism has had a major impact on social science. This text engages with conceptual development, historical formation, contemporary relevance and uses several examples from research to assess the strengths and weaknesses of Feminisms.

  2. Feminism

    Hannam, June, 1947-
    1st ed. - Harlow, England ; New York : Pearson/Longman, c2007.

    Feminism is a cultural as well as a political movement. It changes the way women think and feel and affects how women and men live their lives and interpret the world. For this reason it has provoked lively debate and fierce antagonisms that have continued to the present day. Contemporary feminism and its concerns are rooted in a history stretching over at least two centuries. Feminism explores this history in a range of countries spanning the world. It asks does feminism' exist? Or are the differences among feminist today so great that we should speak of feminisms'? The book looks at the challenge made by feminists to prevailing ideas about a woman's place', the complex relationship between equality and difference, women's solidarity and the relationship between feminism and other social and political reform movements.

  3. Feminism

    Cameron, Deborah, 1958-
    London : Profile Books, 2018.

    'Feminism' wrote Marie Shear in 1986, 'is the radical notion that women are people'. But, simple and powerful though this definition is, feminism is not a single, clear narrative. It doesn't begin with a specific event at a particular moment in time, it can't be identified with any one political organization or movement, and it isn't defined by the contributions of a handful of great thinkers. Here, Professor Deborah Cameron unpicks the various strands that constitute one of history's most important intellectual and political movements. In her clear and incisive account, she discusses oppression, sexuality, violence, academic theory and practical activism, shows how feminism can be a way of viewing the world and provides an overview of its history. In an era of #metoo, pay gap scandals and online harrassment, it's impossible to deny that gender inequality is a fact of life. And as long as that continues to be true, we will need to understand and engage with the ideas and history of the feminist movement.
