In an era of backlash and supposed stagnation, feminist philosophers are still providing fresh and challenging perspectives you just have to know where to look. Continental feminist theory continues to address pressing questions of equality and difference, identity and subjectivity. Modern thinkers like Judith Butler, Kelly Oliver, and Drucilla Cornell give strikingly new perspectives on sex, gender, sexual politics, and the various social reasons for gender inequality. Yet their theories are not always well received. Continental Feminism Reader responds to the marginalization of these thinkers and others like them. In this volume, Ann J.

With these essays, Continental Feminism Reader begins the process of reanimating feminist politics through the critical tools of its contributors."
