John (johnfbrowning) | 2 comments I am currently on the look-out for a book that can give a good rendering (over all) of feminist theory up to the present day. I am interested in gender theory, feminist theory, minority feminist theory and the history of "the movement" in general.
I read "In Our Time" by Brownmiller and it was good - looking for more expansive history.

Drina | 1 comments It's main focus isn't the "theory" of the movement, but if your interested in the history of modern women's rights a great book is Equal by Fred strebeigh. It's focus is specifically on legal history and it follows the development of modern day laws to protect women including the vawa, gender discrimination policies, and the development of sexual harassment as a punishable offense. It has dry moments (it is a book about law, after all) but strebeigh's tone is engaging so that helped.
