Product Description

Product Description

The term 'feminism' came into English usage around the 1890s, but women's conscious struggle to resist discrimination and sexist oppression goes much further back. This completely new and updated edition of "Introducing Feminism" surveys the major developments that have affected women's lives from the 17th century to the present day. "Introducing Feminism" is an invaluable reference book for anyone seeking the story of how feminism reconfigured the world for women and men alike.

About the Author

Cathia Jenainati is Associate Professor in English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick. Judy Groves is a painter and illustrator. She has illustrated many Introducing titles including Wittgenstein, Plato and Philosophy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction 27 Mar 2014
By Chick50
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very clear and readable introduction to the history and the different strands of feminist thinking. It reminded me of stuff I'd forgotten and how we got from there to here .

Basic and more an introduction, all be it sketchy, to the early history of the movement. Honestly I think it would have been better without the graphics. They didn't add a thing that straight prose couldn't have been used for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feminism a graphi guide 9 Jan 2012
By dt
Bought as a secret santa present for a fellow male student who made uninformed comments (to put it nicely!) during a lecture! Great book, pictures too, basic level, but gives you the basics of what you need to know!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro to Feminism 11 Aug 2009
By J. Woolston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a quick and accessible read (the book is in comic book form), this is the book to teach you or others about feminism's history/key players. The book isn't overdone with theory or jargon--instead it allows the reader a basic understanding of the history of the movement and notable feminists. I would use this book for an Intro to Women's Studies Class in a heartbeat. It's style will also appeal to young adult readers since it is so unique and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction 14 Jan 2014
By Anyong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's important to understand that the Introducing series is in the business not of teaching you the entirety of any given subject, but merely introducing you to it. This, as with many other titles in the series, gives you a very quick summary of the movement and its history and touches on many of the significant branches. Believe me, you can always go deeper, and really one ought to if one desires anything close to an actual understanding of the subjects the people at Totem Books purport to introduce.

What I find is that these books in general, and this title specifically, prepares your for deeper reading by giving you the gist of things, and thus allows you to engage other texts with greater sustain and keener acumen. There are other series of course, Cambridge has their wonderful, if frequently denser, Companion series, and Paul Strathern has made his career giving a similar gist in 90 minutes. I would say that the people at Totem have hit the so-called sweet spot with these though. Strathern is too often concerned with biographical detail for my tastes, and spends less time with the ideas themselves (though of course the life of a thinker is important to understanding them. Cambridge has wonderful guides, but even these may be a tad much for someone merely seeking to dip their toe in and take a look around. This is why I recommend this series.

The graphic approach hopefully renders these concepts more accessible to a wider audience, and can indeed make what are often thought of as dull subjects, quite entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars impressive 11 April 2012
By review - Published on Amazon.com
My friend gave me the e-copy of the book. I had a quick look as I am out dated and I do not like reading e copies. As I like reading hard copies raher than soft I decided to buy it. the book is so impressive as it winds up the history of feminism in a readiable, impressive way. I believe the book is an investment as I am highly interested in feminism. Note, the book is the gist of feminism not the detailed account. Helpful, for starters.
