9781442605008: Feminisms Matter: Debates, Theories, Activism

In this lively narrative, newcomers to women's and gender studies, feminist politics, history, and sociology explore a refreshing take on a subject matter often loaded with assumptions. Feminist theories are viewed through the critical intersections of race, class, sexuality, age, and ability, and are embedded in the experiences of everyday life, allowing Bromley to engage readers in doing theory, in making sense of concepts like "power" and "privilege," and in effecting social change. Using a variety of pedagogical devices, including provocative images, discussion questions, and classroom activities, Feminisms Matter helps readers cultivate a way of thinking critically about their everyday worlds.

About the Author:

Victoria L. Bromley is Assistant Professor at the Pauline Jewett Institute of Women's and Gender Studies at Carleton University. She is an award-winning teacher.

Review:

Feminisms Matter is one of those rare books that you can suggest to people who may have feminist views but fear aligning with the "F-word." Those who are mostly familiar with stereotypes of feminism will begin to understand how these false depictions came to be mainstream through Bromley's overview. Feminisms Matter provides readers with an explanation as to how their existing politics may already align with feminist theories. Rather than teaching feminism from a linear "movement" perspective, Bromley sees theory and practice as inseparable—an approach to feminism that acknowledges lived reality. (Shameless Magazine)

Bromley has done an exceptional job of rendering dense and complex material accessible to readers who are interested in understanding current and historical feminisms and will aid educators in helping students connect theories to praxis. Her clear writing and sensible, thorough approach will
meet many readers just where they are at, from those who wonder whether feminisms have anything to offer them to more knowledgeable and experienced people who want to share the importance of feminisms with students, friends, and family members. (Affilia)
