Addressing issues of long-standing concern, but from new perspectives, this book contributes to existing key debates about sexuality, paid work, the development process, equal opportunities legislation, lesbian history and women's writing. Extending beyond disciplinary boundaries many of the contributions address issues such as the politics and practice of women's studies, and the specificity of women's oppression within particular national and international contexts. Theoretical, epistemological and methodological questions are analyzed from a variety of perspectives which frequently defy existing categorizations. Moving beyond the previous positions of Marxist, radical or liberal feminism many contributions challenge the boundaries of existing debates and set new agendas for the future. Whilst recognizing the achievements of women's studies, this collection contributes to the continuing process of critical self-reflection.
