About the Book

Feminism has always refused compartmentalisation within any one social context, and this collection attests to its universal relevance. This is a guide for specialist and non-specialist readers to the many debates and discussions to which feminists have contributed in the past two hundred years.

The collected works are arranged chronologically, giving readers a sense of the history of feminism, and the movement's changes and developments. At the same time, readers can also assess the extent to which some aspects of women's relationships with the social world have remained unchanged.

An insightful introduction places the pieces selected in the appropriate intellectual and historical context, and a new index makes this an indispensable resource and searchable tool.
