5.0 out of 5 stars Feminism is a complex fascinating theory, 17 Dec 2000
This review is from: Feminist Thought: A Comprehensive Introduction (Paperback)
Feminist Thought offers the reader a comprehensive understanding of feminist theory through the 20th century. The book is an up to date text on all strands of mainstream feminism, right up to the modern post feminist school of feminism that grew during the 1990's. Written by a professor of philosophy Tong offers an in-depth discussion and overview of feminist thought and explores its complexities and contradictions. The book also looks at feminism and its claim to empower all types of women, regardless of class sexuality or race. The book opens with a chapter on each type of mainstream feminist theory, Liberal feminism, Marxist feminism, Radical feminism and mothering, Radical feminism on gender and sexuality. Then Tong moves on to discuss psychoanalytic feminism and socialist feminism and then a chapter on post-feminism, the book finishes with a discussion on standpoints. An essential text for students of feminism, and for any women who wants to have a better understanding of their own life.
