This volume attempts to locate feminism/s within historical and critical perspectives, and provides a broad framework within which to locate the possible politics of feminism. It traces the trajectory of
feminism, from a movement for the rights of women to the possibility
of an 'organic revolution', and from the renegotiations of the 'woman
question' by early feminists and suffragists to the critical
interventions of ecofeminists and lesbian feminism.
