Breaking Out is one of the classics of feminist sociology. In this new edition Liz Stanley and Sue Wise review the main developments in feminist thinking on research issues since the book first appeared.


The original Breaking Out was an important milestone in establishing a radically new basis for feminist thought. Breaking Out Again demonstrates how these ideas are still of central concern … a stimulating, challenging and exciting book which must be read by all those who wish to be at the forefront of current debates in feminist social thought. - Mary Maynard, University of York

Breaking out is exactly what feminist academics ought to do more often. The revised edition of Breaking Out provides exciting and valuable suggestions about how to do it. - Mary Evans, University of Kent

Here, as in their earlier work, Liz Stanley and Sue Wise offer thought-provoking, and very suggestive critiques of contemporary feminist theory and research. Breaking Out Again provides a clear, often witty, examination of the dangers of many of our assumptions about how knowledge is made and offers alternatives. - Cheris Kramarae, University of Illinois
