Here is a comprehensive collection of the most important essays on gender in the last two decades. It presents lively, controversial and critical discussions concerning such themes as the social constitution of gender; the nature of sexual oppression; the relation of gender to family, class, race and culture; and feminist perspectives on science and philosophy. It also includes leading essays on questions of ethics and difference in the law, such as privacy, pornography and reproductive rights. It is an indispensable text for courses in feminist philosophy and theories of gender, as well as an important resource for scholars in philosophy and the social sciences.
