Feminist Anthropology surveys the history of feminist anthropology and offers students and scholars a fascinating collection of both classic and contemporary articles, grouped to highlight key themes from the past and present.

  • Offers vibrant examples of feminist ethnographic work rather than synthetic overviews of the field.
  • Each section is framed by a theoretical and bibliographic essay.
  • Includes a thoughtful introduction to the volume that provides context and discusses the intellectual “foremothers” of the field, including Margaret Mead, Ruth Landes, Phyllis Kaberry, and Zora Neale Hurston.
