"The Cambridge Companion to Feminism in Philosophy is first-rate." Ethics
"The articles are independent pieces of scholarship in very discrete areas of philosophy and, as such, demonstrate the rich diversity of feminist thought.... This book complements well those volumes...devoted to feminist interpretations of major philosophers, and it belongs in most academic libraries. Recommended for general readers, upper-division undergraduates, and graduate students." Choice
"Feminism has not yet achieved the authoritative standing within philosophy that it enjoys in, say, literary criticism, where a survey text that omitted feminist perspectives would not be considered intellectually respectable. As a result, the editors of this fine volume have once again had to defend feminism's importance to philosophy. If we are to reach the state where feminist philosophy no more needs to justify its existence than does pragmatism or neo-Kantianism, it will be books of this caliber that get us there." International Philosophical Quarterly
The thirteen specially-commissioned essays in this volume are designed to provide an accessible and stimulating guide through an area of philosophical thought and literature that has seen massive expansion in recent years. They encompass all the core subject areas commonly taught in anglophone undergraduate and graduate philosophy courses, offering both an overview of and a contribution to the relevant debates. This volume will be essential reading for any student or teacher of philosophy who is curious about the place of feminism in their subject.
