Shelves: textbooks, feminism

It provides a great overview of the different types of feminism (liberal, radical, eco, etc) and the issues that feminists continue to debate (affirmative action, prostitution, pornography, abortion, militarism, etc). My only wish would be for an updated version with newer statistics.
