"Cahill (Elon Univ.) argues against the standard feminist account that unethical treatment of women in sexual encounters is due to the objectification of the femable by the male. It should be replaced, she argues, by a new concept--derivitization....This argumetn is persuasive and should become a new benchmark in feminist theory for all those interested in feminist philosophy and sexual ethics. Summing up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty." — CHOICE, October 2011, S.C. Schwarze, Carbini College, USA
