This book is important if you have an interest in feminist ideologies and philosophies. Jaggar does an excellent job of reviewing the histories and main points of various brands of feminism while intelligently philosophizing their purposes as well as their positive and negative traits.

Not recommended for those who prefer more of a fun read of history.

Great comprehensive look at Liberal, Marxist, Radical and Socialist Feminism. She really covered all her bases while creating her detailed analysis of these various theories. Not only does she explain them well, she compares and contrasts them, while giving a critique of each theory.

Such a helpful overview of the history of feminism. Jaggar helpfully targets strengths and weaknesses of different types of feminist theory.
