This new volume challenges traditional perspectives into female sexuality and helps pave the way for revised understandings of women's sexuality. Top feminist scholars begin the task of molding conceptual models and methods of inquiry that will help shape a science for and about women. Taking the view that sexuality is socially constructed, the authors offer new insights into the epistemological data, theoretical models, and research methods on sexuality. At the book's core, the many issues central to how women discover the meaning of their sexuality in the world around them are explored. Topics discussed include the development of female sexuality at important points in the life-span, humor and sexuality, body image, sexual assertiveness, sexual harassment, and acquaintance rape. This readable and fascinating volume will provide an important starting point to carve out a feminist agenda for new scholarship in this too-long ignored part of women's lives.
