The Politics of Reality: Essays in Feminist Theory
Politics of Reality includes essays that examine sexism, the exploitation of women, the gay rights movement and other topics from a feminist perspective.
"This is radical feminist theory at its best: clear, careful and critical."--SIGNS
"For anyone first coming to feminism, these essays serve as a backdrop . . . for understanding the basic, early and continuing perspectives of feminists. And for all of us they provide a theoretical framework in which to read the present as well as the past."--Women's Review of Books
"The style is both scholarly and direct without being ponderous. Frye makes a concerted effort to stimulate discussion, as opposed to arguing unopposed, so that much of the work is novel and candid. . . . An important addition to a complete feminist library."--Choice
