Third wave feminism A Critical Exploration

Third Wave Feminism: A Critical Exploration Paperback – 1 Jun 2007

'This expanded second edition of 'Third Wave Feminism' is an unexpected pleasure. While much work on 'the third wave' is ahistorical, nationally-bounded and analytically bankrupt, here the editors bring together an impressive range of articles living up to the volume's subtitle of 'critical exploration'. The anthology provides a historically and conceptually grounded background to the area, highlights the limits as well as possibilities of generational approaches, and constitutes a politically diverse, international set of reflections on the terrain. Essential reading.' - Clare Hemmings, Gender Institute, London School of Economics
'This is an excellent and important book that left me, as Imelda Whelehan puts it at the end of her foreword, "once again caring that I am a feminist, whatever the era.'' - Alice Ridout, Contemporary Women's Writing
