Summary

A clear, comprehensive, and indispensable introduction to the major traditions of feminist theory, Feminist Thought includes incisive, critical examinations of liberal feminism, radical feminism, Marxist and socialist feminism, psychoanalytic feminism, and ecofeminism. This third edition has been thoroughly reformulated and expanded to encompass recent developments in feminist thought. Particularly noteworthy are a new chapter on care-focused feminism (Chapter 5), an exploration of the connections of multicultural and global feminism with postcolonial feminism (Chapter 6), and a close consideration of the linkages between postmodern feminism and third-wave feminism (Chapter 8). Key feminist theorists such as Virginia Held, Judith Butler, Martha Nussbaum, and Eva Feder Kittay receive new or extended discussions. The much-expanded bibliography, organized by topics within chapters, provides an invaluable aid to further research. An illuminating guide to the diversity of feminism, Feminist Thought continues to serve as the essential resource for students and thinkers who want to understand the theoretical origins and complexities of contemporary feminist debates.
