What is Feminism?: An Introduction to Feminist Theory
"In this concise and accessible introduction to feminist theory, Chris Beasley provides clear explanations of the many types of feminism which exist in different Western societies. She outlines the development of liberal, radical and marxist/socialist feminisms, reviews the more contemporary influences of psychoanalysis, postmodernism, theories of the body, and queer theory, and attends to the ongoing significance of race and ethnicity. Given the diversity of feminist ideas, Chris Beasley suggests a number of ways of looking at feminist theory and offers an open-ended approach which allows for variety and change."--BOOK JACKET.
