Taking a performance-centered perspective on folklore, contributors to this volume challenge patriarchal assumptions of the past and rethink old topics from a feminist perspective while opening new areas of research. In eighteen chapters the book covers girls' games, political cartoons, quilting, Pentecostal preachers, daily housework, Egyptian goddesses, tall tales, and birth. This hallmark collection of feminist folklore will be a valuable resource for scholars and other interested readers.
