A stimulating and incisive book, Provoking Feminisms is a collection of essays, comments, and replies on some of today's most contentious issues in feminist theory. Specific conversations center on such topics of debate as feminist standpoint theory; gender as an analytic category; problems with sexual "difference"; and privacy and representations of the personal.
Each exchange speaks powerfully to the current issues central to feminist scholarship and includes discussions from a cross-section of disciplines: political/social theory, philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, and critical theory. Intense and rigorous, Provoking Feminisms is a crucial work for anyone interested in the state of contemporary feminist scholarship.
