Summary:"What has happened to feminism over the last few decades? Is it any use as a 'politics for women' any more? Or has feminism lost its political edge and utility having changed beyond all recognition since the massive influence of postmodern and poststructural ideas? This book addresses these questions, and presents a valuable overview of the main forms of feminism at the heart of the traditional/contemporary or modernist/postmodernist debate." "In order to 'think the theories through practice', Zalewski uses the example of reproductive technologies (such as IVF, amniocentesis and ultrasound), which unexpectedly reveals some intriguing similarities between modernist and postmodernist feminisms and illustrates some of the beneficial legacies of the more traditional feminisms, casting doubt on claims that such feminisms are anachronistic." "Feminism after Postmodernism is an essential guide for all those working in gender studies and feminist theory."--Jacket.
