Feminism and the Social Control of Gender

Price $15.00

Vol. 17, No. 3 (1990)

The topic of this issue is the social control of gender and the reinforcing of traditional gender roles. It discusses the Reagan-era devastation of economic and social programs benefiting women and children, and the right-wing agenda of traditional family values, which resulted in increased attacks on women, minorities, the gay community, and on new and creative visions of human relations. Authors note the imperative of redefining feminism and developing new frameworks for analyzing the status of women. Feminist theory issued a call for new methodologies, new epistemologies, and new models for social change that place women's reality at the center of primary assumptions. These theoretical advances came from women around the world, and articles in this issue, although not a comprehensive survey of theoretical developments, reflect some of this new thinking.
