The term 'feminism' came into English usage around the 1890s, but women's conscious struggle to resist discrimination and sexist oppression goes much further back. This completely new and updated edition of Introducing Feminism surveys the major developments that have affected women's lives from the 17th century to the present day.
By highlighting the key social, political and literary ideas which have determined our thinking about the status of women across the globe, this book tells the story of remarkable individuals who actively challenged and changed traditions, social customs and laws.
Introducing Feminism is an invaluable reference book for anyone seeking the story of how feminism reconfigured the world for women and men alike.
