Abstract
What is feminism? How can 'feminism' be defined? Should feminism be defined? This book offers a timely and engaging account of exactly what feminism is, and what it is not. Thompson questions much of what has come to be taken for granted as 'feminism' and points to the limitations of implicitly defining feminism in terms of 'women', 'gender', 'difference' or 'race/gender/class'. She challenges some of the most widely accepted ideas about feminism and in doing so opens up a number of hitherto closed debates, allowing for the possibility of moving those debates further. A fresh and sometimes controversial consideration of current academic feminist literatures, Radical Feminism Today will be essential reading for all students of women's studies and the sociology of feminism.
