Moderating Feminism: the Past the Now and What Comes Next
Has feminism produced the goods for women or not? Do the Men’s Rights Movement, who now also claim discrimination, have a point? Why do feminists not agree amongst themselves on abortion, pornography or the burka?
In Moderating Feminism, Louise Burfitt-Dons begins with a broad-based historical account of the women’s movement in the UK and the US from Elizabethan times to today. She then examines some of the contradictions and challenges of modern feminism including consumerism, identity politics, Queen Bee Syndrome and sharia law. Her conclusion is a manifesto which outlines a new feminist philosophy which works for all.
