A highly accessible overview of the central themes of women's studies, suitable for introductory reading in undergraduate courses or for a more general audience's introduction to the meaning of feminism and its relevance as a progressive force in society. The authors tackle six broad topics that dominate the field and are key to understanding women's experiences and prospects: women's bodies, anger & desires, sexuality, internal backlash, feminist methods, & identity politics. The authors consider why there is a resistance to the development of American feminism and women's studies in the academy, with their continuing representation of marginalized, excluded, and silenced voices.
