The feminist movement, we have been told, is history. This lively book reveals that on the contrary the feminist movement is alive and kicking, still as engaged with the concerns and ways of seeing as it was in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, still demanding its political place. Renewing Feminisms sets out the claim for a feminism that is renewed, re-invigorated and re-imagined. Renewing Feminisms offers a timely contribution to current debates about lived and imagined feminism today. The contributors, both longstanding feminists and emerging feminist scholars, take a fresh look at feminist critiques and methodologies, recalling the power of past feminist interventions, as well as presenting a new call for future initiatives in media and cultural studies. Re-investigating the past facilitates a claim over the future, and all the contributions to this book make clear that feminism is not only far from over, it is lived and experienced in the everyday, and on personal and political levels. Divided into four key sections, the book revisits major feminist areas, investigating representational issues, those of agency and narrative, media forms and formats, and the traditional boundaries of the public and the private. What emerges is a real intervention into media and cultural studies in terms of how we understand them today.
