Editorial Reviews


`These essays are likely to be welcomed by those coming from a women's studies perspective....In addition, they open up possibilities for articulating an embodied theory of the body, which will be of interest to students of sociology or cultural theory and feminists alike' - Times Higher Education Supplement

`As the editor of this exciting collection notes, while bodies are "in" in social and cultural theory, there has been a surprising neglect of the gendered nature of embodiment. This book presents fascinating and original accounts of the nature and meaning of female bodies over a range of cultural and political contexts and practices. The book's strengths lie in its successful melding of contemporary theory with empirical research and grounded examples of women's embodiment' - Deborah Lupton, Charles Sturt University, Bathurst

`An excellent collection on the body from a specifically feminist perspective... a solid empirical work imbued with cutting-edge theorizing. Political implications for women are always foregrounded' - Judith Lorber
