Feminism and History

Synopsis

How have `women' been defined in different historical circumstances? How have categories of social differentiation--gender, class, race, sexuality--defined the identity of women? Feminism and History brings together the classic and best articles written over the period of contemporary feminist theory, providing a critical analysis of, and historical context for, the ways in which `women' and sexual difference have been represented.
