Introduction to Women's Studies Reviews

"The combination of a large body of informative and entertaining material, a clear and engaging style and an openness to a variety of theoretical perspectives makes this an excellent introductory volume for Women's Studies Students." Mary Eagleton, University College of Ripon and York

"Written in accessible and jargon-free lanmguage, this book deftly guides the reader through the major concepts and interpretative methods of Women's Studies. It is a cogent synthesis of current thinking, posing important questions about women's experience, often with vivid, humous and moving quotations. It is an ideal and invaluable preparation for any Women's Studies degree." Maggie Humm, University of East London
