Description
Summary:These essays by leading scholars represent the cutting edge of contemporary feminist thought in Australia today. Besides providing comprehensive coverage of key feminist issues in the region, the contributors also look at developments in the US and Europe. Questions are raised in a discussion of feminist responses to postmodern and postcolonial critiques, as well as perspectives on the complex relationships between Australian Aboriginal women and Australian feminists. The work explores gender problems associated with economic issues, the implementation of equal opportunity in the workplace, and gender inequities in the law, in politics, and in marriage.
