Feminism and the New Democracy: Resiting the Political

Front Cover
Jodi Dean
SAGE Publications, May 5, 1997 - Social Science - 288 pages
This wide-ranging book responds to and moves beyond recent debates about the relationship between feminism and politics to offer a vision for the future of feminist theory. Leading figures have combined to offer a broad framework through which to articulate a `new democracy' - one that transgresses the traditional oppositions of equality and difference, sex and gender, essential and constructed, to view the `political' as complex, layered and relational.

Issues addressed include: gender, ethnicity, culture and sexual orientation, always embracing the multiple terrains and spaces produced by politics.
