Editorial Reviews


"The Feminist Theory Reader brings together a sterling collection of essays that address fundamental issues in gender studies. The anthology draws from both classic articles such as those of Butler, Hill Collins, Anzaldua and Lorde and more recently published works. A "must have" text for present and future generation of scholars, activists, students and, of course, a combination of any of these."

—Alma M. Garcia, Sociology, Santa Clara University

"At last an anthology that does not embody a mythical universal woman or make us choose between the local and global, between theory and practice, between academia and grassroots social movements. This is a wonderful classroom tool with which to theorize feminism into its global futures."

—Banu Subramaniam, Women’s Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

"The first edition of Feminist Theory Reader challenged readers to think about the meanings of difference in both local and global contexts, and the second edition further challenges readers to rethink current multiracial, transnational feminist theories about globalization, citizenship, and identity. This excellent anthology will be invaluable for courses in gender and women’s studies."

—Jae Kyung Lee, Women’s Studies, Ewha Womans University, South Korea

This book is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in feminist perspectives. It is a compilation of feminist voices and perspectives on a variety of topics that span space and time. The book offers a global perspective on various feminist theories and practices with distinct sections on different time periods, local politics, identity, epistemology, the body and solidarity. It encompasses voices as varied as the Combahee River Collective, radical queer theorists and liberal feminists and incorporates various forms of writing from essays to personal narratives and poems.
