Editorial Reviews


"I LOVE this book. I would be miserable teaching my 'gender, sexuality, and the body' course without it." --Laura Carpenter, Vanderbilt University

"I love the approach of the text. It is by far a favorite of my students. I always get positive feedback on it. Weitz's inclusion of issues concerning class and race works well with my lectures on interlocking oppressions. The book is both challenging and insightful." --Kim MacInnis, Bridgewater State College

"I will definitely adopt a new edition. . . . This is currently the only text that comprehensively offers the breadth of information about women's bodily experiences. The Politics of Women's Bodies has provided me with a sound framework to build my course, and continues to be a very effective source for my students." --Tonja Olive, Colorado College

About the Author

Rose Weitz is Professor of Women and Gender Studies at Arizona State University.

it was a used version that i wanted to review before deciding whether to order it or not. It was an older version and it was ultimately not the one I wanted.
