Feminism, Identity and Difference

Edited By Susan J. Hekman Copyright 1999

    This study focuses on a set of issues at the forefront of feminist thought in the late 1990s: identity, difference and their implications for feminist politics. As feminism moves into an era in which differences among women, the multiple identities of woman and identity politics are all at the centre of feminist discussions, new approaches, methods and politics are called for.
