9780199859085: Gender Inequality: Feminist Theories and Politics

In Gender Inequality: Feminist Theories and Politics, Fifth Edition, internationally renowned feminist Judith Lorber examines thirteen evolving theories of gender inequality. Tightly structured around Lorber's own paradigm of "reform, resistance, rebellion," this combination text/reader acknowledges feminism's significant contributions to redressing gender inequality and celebrates its enormous accomplishments over the last forty years. It also documents feminism's ongoing political activism, and with an exploration of postmodern and third-wave trends, points toward its future.

Significantly rewritten, reorganized, and updated, the fifth edition includes:

* More coverage of cultural feminism
* New readings on such topics as deconstruction, ecofeminism, and Chicana feminism
* An expanded discussion of postmodern feminism, including transgendering and its congruences and conflicts with feminist theory and politics
* New references on transnational feminism and feminist studies of men
