Exploring the status of feminism in this "postfeminist" age,
this sophisticated meditation on feminist thinking over the past
three decades moves away from the all too common dependence on
French theorists and male thinkers and instead builds on a
wide-ranging body of feminist theory written by women.
These writings address the question "Where are we going?" as
well as "Where have we come from?" As evidenced in the essays
compiled here, the multiplicity of directions available to this new
feminism ranges from poststructuralist academic theory through
cultural activism to re-readings of law, literature, and
representation. Contributors include Mieke Bal, Lauren Berlant,
Rosi Braidotti, Elisabeth Bronfen, Judith Butler, Rey Chow,
Drucilla Cornell, Ann Cvetkovich, Jane Gallop, Beatrice Hanssen,
Claire Kahane, Ranjana Khanna, Biddy Martin, Juliet Mitchell, Anita
Haya Patterson, and Valerie Smith.
Feminist Consequences, representing the forefront of
international feminist thought, marks a new and long-desired stage
of feminist criticism where women are themselves making theory
rather than reacting to male production.
