I'll give this a 5 out of 5 stars. It was very easy to read and understand. The illustrations complimented the written work perfectly and it introduced me to so many influential feminist works. I now have such a long its of books and articles to read, this guide did a wonderful job at introducing feminism clearly. I would recommend this book to everyone, especially the people who claim they hate feminism without knowing what it really is. I already recommended this book to a guy friend after deb...more

I like and respect this book, which does a great job of introducing quite a wide spread of historical and contemporary attitudes towards advocating feminism.

Author Cathia Jenainati is a feminist scholar, historian and college professor; however, she does not address the third wave of feminism in this book at all, other than mentioning "girl power" and crediting it to the Spice Girls.

I really like this book because it was easy to read and understand. Great introducing to feminism. But there are also women live in middle east. Feminism is not just for America or England. With some information about feminism in the middle east, this book could've been much better.

The term 'feminism' came into English usage around the 1890s, but women's conscious struggle to resist discrimination and sexist oppression goes much further back. This completely new and updated edition of "Introducing Feminism" surveys the major developments that have affected women's lives from the 17th century to the present day. "Introducing Feminism" is an invaluable reference book for anyone seeking the story of how feminism reconfigured the world for women and men alike.

This was a great overview of feminist history and the continuing struggle for women's rights. I definitely recommend it for anyone who is wondering what feminism is all about.
Phoebe Macdonald
A great introduction to a broad topic. Brilliant illustrations, too. A chapter on male feminists would have been good, though.
Aditi
Really great. But wished it had illustrated more of the non-Western world! Very interesting though!
Dominique Pordeus
