Product description

Review

Fahs provides striking evidence that contemporary sexual liberation is sexual performance that disempowers women with the name of empowerment Connecting the data from interviews to her clinical experience and current relevant scholarship, the author challenges readers to ask if liberation alone is enough Fahs examines each case in detail with very accessible language and elaboration Highly recommended. CHOICE
Fahs has the opportunity here to shape what should become a burgeoning subfield in gender and sexuality studies the study of sexual subjectivities. This straddles social psychology, women s studies, and sociology and explores the concept that social influences and forces effect how people come to understand themselves on an individual or psychological level. Rebecca F. Plante, coeditor of Doing Gender Diversity: Readings in Theory and Real-World Experience"
