Description: 'I'm not a feminist, but...'What does it mean to accept or resist a feminist identity? Feminisms Matterconfronts the major reasons people offer for not being feminists by breaking apart stereotypes of feminists, unraveling myths about women's history, and challenging assumptions about feminists and feminisms.In this lively narrative, newcomers to women's and gender studies explore a refreshing introduction to the relevance and history of women's movements as well as to the critical intersections of feminist activism and theory with race, class, age, sexuality, and ability studies. Within this topical focus, readers are challenged to confront any apprehensions about theory and to recognize the many ways in which they already 'do' theory. They are thereby enabled to understand the relationship between social constructions and concepts like 'power' and 'privilege.'
