Once seen as synonymous with "anti-feminism" postfeminism i now understood as the theoretical meeting ground between feminism and anti-foundationalist movements such as postmodernism, post-structuralism and post-colonialsm. In this clear exposition of some of the major debates, theorists and practitioners, Ann Brooks shows how feminism is being redefined for the twenty first century. Individual chapters look at postfeminism in relation to feminist epistemology, Foucault, psychoanalytic theory and semiology postmodernism and postcolonialism, cultural politics, popular culture, film and media, and sexuality and identity For all students looking for guidance through the sometimes murky waters of contemporary feminist theory, this book wil provide a reassuring first port of call.


'Postfeminisms offers a comprehensive and imaginative mapping of the politico-theoretical shift brought about in feminism's agenda through its encounters with poststructuralism, postmodernism and postcolonialism … a useful text for undergraduates in women's studies and cultural studies.' - Anna Yeatman, Macquarie University, Australia
