Theorizing Feminisms provides a survey of approaches to theoretical issues raised by the quest for gender justice. It takes as its organising questions: What is sexist oppression? What ought to be done about it? The goal of the text is to provide an overview of feminist reponses to, including a critique of, these questions. It is ideal for use in interdisciplinary feminist theory courses.
