The third edition of the Feminist Theory Reader anthologizes the important classical and contemporary works of feminist theory within a multiracial transnational framework. This edition includes 16 new essays; the editors have organized the readings into four sections, which challenge the prevailing representation of feminist movements as waves.

Introductory essays at the beginning of each section lay out the framework that brings the readings together and provide historical and intellectual context.
