Feminist Stages draws together the voices of more than fifty women currently working in the theatres of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
It asks provocative questions: What is Feminism? Does gender matter in the theatre? Is there a "female" or "feminist" way of working in the theatre? Are things changing for women in the theatre today?
These women speak across generations, sometimes at cross purposes. They speak from individual positions with regard to race, class, sexuality and regional identity, and approaches to performance.

Feminist Stages is a major contribution to the study of women and theatre, reminding us of the remarkable achievements of established women writers and directing our attention to innovative work of younger women.

Goodmans research reveals that the extensive scale of feminist theatre activity means it can no longer be dismissed as a peripheral or marginal form.
