9780415906449: Compassionate Authority: Democracy and the Representation of Women

Kathleen Jones takes up some of the most central debates in contemporary feminist analysis: the nature of the categories of feminist theory; the development of alternative interpretative strategies; and the position of authority in feminist theory and practice. She engages with postmodernist feminism, the writings of feminists of colour, and textual strategies of film theory, to challenge conventional formulations of authority in modern political theory.

Review:

[This] is a book which is original, well argued, and useful to all those concerned about the participation of women in politics and, more generally, the practice of political authority.... Jones provides us with a reformulation of political authority that is, like the rest of the book, both daring and thoughtful..
