Summary

The most widely used anthology of feminist writings and the first to incorporate issues of sexual orientation and sexual diversity, Feminist Frontiers has stood the test of time. With readings that cut across disciplines and generational lines, Feminist Frontiers presents the full diversity of women's issues and experiences, exploring their similarities as well as their differences. Feminist Frontiers offers analyses of the causes and consequences of gender inequality and introduces students to feminist theory and methodology. A sociological analysis opens each of the four parts and eleven sections of the book. Boxed inserts, with news articles, humor, and other writings from the popular press complement the readings.
