The woman of reason: feminism, humanism, and political thought
In this revisiting of the Western humanistic tradition, political philosopher Green questions whether humanism should be rejected by feminists as "patriarchal" or "essentialist". Through an examination of the works of early female humanists, Green seeks to rehabilitate the humanistic tradition for feminist political purposes.
