Abolition. Feminism. Now af Angela Y. Davis
Abolition. Feminism. Now. is a celebration of freedom work, a movement genealogy, a call to action, and a challenge to those who think of abolition and feminism as separate--even incompatible--political projects. In this remarkable collaborative work, leading scholar-activists Angela Y. Davis, Gina Dent, Erica R. Meiners, and Beth E. Richie surface the often unrecognized genealogies of queer, anti-capitalist, internationalist, grassroots, and women-of-color-led feminist movements, struggles, and organizations that have helped to define abolition and feminism in the twenty-first century. This pathbreaking book also features illustrations documenting the work of grassroots organizers embodying abolitionist feminist practice. Amplifying the analysis and the theories of change generated out of vibrant community based organizing, Abolition. Feminism. Now. highlights necessary historical linkages, key internationalist learnings, and everyday practices to imagine a future where we can all thrive.
Badass Feminist Politics af Sarah Jane Blithe and Janell C. Bauer (Red.)
In the late 2010s, the United States experienced a period of widespread silencing. Protests of unsafe drinking water have been met with tear gas; national park employees, environmentalists, and scientists have been ordered to stop communicating publicly. Advocates for gun control are silenced even as mass shootings continue. Expressed dissent to political power is labeled as "fake news." DREAMers, Muslims, Trans military members, women, black bodies, the LGBTQI+ community, Latina/o/x communities, rape survivors, sex workers, and immigrants have all been systematically silenced. During this difficult time and despite such restrictions, advocates and allies persist and resist, forming dialogues that call to repel inequality in its many forms. Addressing the oppression of women of color, white women, women with (dis)abilities, and LBTQI+ individuals across cultures and contexts remains a central posit of feminist struggle and requires "a distinctly feminist politics of recognition." However, as second wave debates about feminism have revealed, there is no single way to express a feminist politic. Rather, living feminist politics requires individual interpretation and struggle, collective discussion and disagreement, and recognizing difference among women as well as points of convergence in feminist struggle. Badass Feminist Politics includes a diverse range of engaging feminist political projects to not only analyze the work being done on the ground but provide an overview for action that can be taken on by those seeking to engage in feminist activism in their own communities. Contributors included here are working for equality and equity and resisting violent, racist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, and sexist language and action during this tension-filled political moment. Collectively, the book explores what it means to live and communicate feminist politics in everyday choices and actions, and how we can facilitate learning by analyzing these examples. Taking up current issues and new theoretical perspectives, the authors offer novel perspectives into what it means to live feminist politics. This book is a testament to resilience, resistance, communication, and forward thinking about what these themes all mean for new feminist agendas. Learning how to resist oppressive structures through words and actions is particularly important for students. Badass Feminist Politics features scholars from non-dominant groups taking up issues of marginalization and oppression, which can help people accomplish their social justice goals of inclusivity on the ground and in the classroom.
Bög i folkhemmet : en memoar af Arne Nilsson
»Mamma var mån om att inte sticka ut från omgivningen. Man skulle inte göra sig märkvärdig. En vanlig kommentar av henne var ›Vad skulle andra säga!‹«Vad skulle andra säga? Frasen ekar genom Arne Nilssons memoarer. Som sociolog har han utfört banbrytande forskning om homoliv i Göteborg under 1900-talet. Här berättar han sin egen historia om hur det var att växa upp som bög i en arbetarfamilj under efterkrigstiden i Göteborg. En tid då folkhemmet byggdes upp och många fick det materiellt bättre, samtidigt som homofobin var stark och många homosexuella tvingades att leva dubbelliv.I Bög i folkhemmet får vi följa Nilssons klassresa, först som arbetarkille på läroverk och senare på universitetet. Vi får följa hans liv som homo vid tiden före den svenska gayrörelsens genombrott. Erotiska möten med andra män, gayklubbliv, livet i det estetiska avantgardet och i olika vänster- och alternativrörelser. Vi får se hur hans liv som klassresenär och som homo hängde samman. Det är ett stycke svensk historia som sällan berättats tidigare.
Controlling Women af Kathryn Kolbert; Julie F. Kay
**Shortlisted for the 2021 Stephan Russo Goddard Riverside Book Prize for Social Justice** This definitive account of the battle for reproductive freedom includes a bold new strategy to safeguard our rights, from two lawyers at the forefront of the movement. Reproductive freedom has never been in more dire straits. Roe v. Wade protected abortion rights and Planned Parenthood v. Casey unexpectedly preserved them. Yet in the following decades these rights have been gutted by restrictive state legislation, the appointment of hundreds of anti-abortion judges, and violence against abortion providers. Today, the ultra-conservative majority at the Supreme Court has overturned our most fundamental reproductive protections. With Roe toppled, abortion is now a criminal offense in nearly one-third of the United States. At least six states have enacted bans on abortion as early as six weeks of pregnancy--before many women are even aware they are pregnant. Today, 89% of U.S. counties do not have a single abortion provider, in part due to escalating violence and intimidation aimed at disrupting services. We should all be free to make these personal and private decisions that affect our lives and wellbeing without government interference or bias, but we can no longer depend on Roe v. Wade and the federal courts to preserve our liberties. Legal titans Kathryn Kolbert and Julie F. Kay share the story of one of the most divisive issues in American politics through behind-the-scenes personal narratives of stunning losses, hard-earned victories, and moving accounts of women and health care providers at the heart of nearly five decades of legal battles. Kolbert and Kay propose audacious new strategies inspired by medical advances, state-level protections, human rights models, and activists across the globe whose courage and determination are making a difference. No more banging our heads against the Court's marble walls. It is time for a new direction.
Decolonizing Queer Experience af Emily Channell-Justice (Editor,)
In Eastern Europe and Eurasia, LGBT+ individuals face repression by state forces and non-state actors who attempt to reinforce their vision of traditional social values. Decolonizing Queer Experience moves beyond discourses of oppression and repression to explore the resistance and resilience of LGBT+ communities who are remaking the post-socialist world; they refuse domination from local heteronormative expectations and from global LGBT+ movements that create and suggest limitations on possible LGBT+ futures. The chapters in this collection feature a multiplicity of LGBT+ voices, suggesting that no single narrative of LGBT+ experience in post-socialism is more representative or informative than another. This collection highlights the globally flexible, infinitely malleable notion of LGBT+ that counters Western hegemony in queer activism and communities.
Den perfekta mannen? af Jesper Andreasson og Thomas Johansson
Förenklade föreställningar om manlighet och mäns kroppar är vanligt förekommande i såväl den offentliga debatten som i forskningssammanhang. Män beskrivs som dominerande, disciplinerande och våldsamma.I denna bok erbjuds en nyanserad, men också kritisk bild av manlighetens olika ansikten.Jesper Andreasson och Thomas Johansson är båda sociologer.
Designing Motherhood af Michelle Millar Fisher; Amber Winick; Alexandra Lange (Foreword by)
More than eighty designs--iconic, archaic, quotidian, and taboo--that have defined the arc of human reproduction. While birth often brings great joy, making babies is a knotty enterprise. The designed objects that surround us when it comes to menstruation, birth control, conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and early motherhood vary as oddly, messily, and dramatically as the stereotypes suggest. This smart, image-rich, fashion-forward, and design-driven book explores more than eighty designs--iconic, conceptual, archaic, titillating, emotionally charged, or just plain strange--that have defined the relationships between people and babies during the past century. Each object tells a story. In striking images and engaging text, Designing Motherhood unfolds the compelling design histories and real-world uses of the objects that shape our reproductive experiences. The authors investigate the baby carrier, from the Snugli to BabyBjörn, and the (re)discovery of the varied traditions of baby wearing; the tie-waist skirt, famously worn by a pregnant Lucille Ball on I Love Lucy, and essential for camouflaging and slowly normalizing a public pregnancy; the home pregnancy kit, and its threat to the authority of male gynecologists; and more. Memorable images--including historical ads, found photos, and drawings--illustrate the crucial role design and material culture plays throughout the arc of human reproduction. The book features a prologue by Erica Chidi and a foreword by Alexandra Lange.

Digital Suffragists af Marie Tessier
Why women's voices are outnumbered online and what we can do about it, by a New York Times comment moderator. If you've read the comments posted by readers of online news sites, you may have noticed the absence of women's voices. Men are by far the most prolific commenters on politics and public affairs. When women do comment, they are often attacked or dismissed more than men are. In fact, the comment forums on news sites replicate conditions of the offline and social media worlds, where women are routinely interrupted, threatened, demeaned, and called wrong, unruly, disgusting, and out of place. In Digital Suffragists, Marie Tessier-a veteran journalist and a New York Times comment moderator for more than a decade-investigates why women's voices are outnumbered online and what we can do about it. The suffragists of the early twentieth century were jailed for trying to vote. Can a twenty-first century democracy be functional when half of the population is not fully represented in a primary form of political communication? Tessier shows that for online comments, it's a design problem- the linear blog comment formula was based on deeply gender-biased assumptions. Technologies designed with a broad range of end users in mind, she points out, are more successful and beneficial than those that reflect the designer's own habits of mind. Tessier outlines benchmarks for a more democratic media, all of which stem from one fundamental idea- media must adopt gender and racial representation as key performance indicators. Equal speaking time for women is a measure of democracy.
Dollars for Life af Mary Ziegler
A new understanding of the slow drift to extremes in American politics that shows how the anti-abortion movement remade the Republican Party "A timely and expert guide to one of today's most hot-button political issues."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A sober, knowledgeable scholarly analysis of a timely issue."--Kirkus Reviews "[Ziegler's] argument [is] that, over the course of decades, the anti-abortion movement laid the groundwork for an insurgent candidate like Trump."--Jennifer Szalai, New York Times The modern Republican Party is the party of conservative Christianity and big business--two things so closely identified with the contemporary GOP that we hardly notice the strangeness of the pairing. Legal historian Mary Ziegler traces how the anti-abortion movement helped to forge and later upend this alliance. Beginning with the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Buckley v. Valeo, right-to-lifers fought to gain power in the GOP by changing how campaign spending--and the First Amendment--work. The anti-abortion movement helped to revolutionize the rules of money in U.S. politics and persuaded conservative voters to fixate on the federal courts. Ultimately, the campaign finance landscape that abortion foes created fueled the GOP's embrace of populism and the rise of Donald Trump. Ziegler offers a surprising new view of the slow drift to extremes in American politics--and explains how it had everything to do with the strange intersection of right-to-life politics and campaign spending.
Doublethink af Janice Raymond
In an age when falsehoods are commonly taken as truth, Janice Raymonds new book illuminates the doublethink of a transgender movement that is able to define men as women, women as men, he as she, dissent as heresy, science as sham, and critics as fascists. Meanwhile, trans mobs are treated as gender patriots whose main enemy is feminists and their dissent from gender orthodoxies. The medicalization of gender dissatisfaction depicted by Raymond in her early visionary book, The Transsexual Empire, has today expanded exponentially into the transgender industrial complex built on big medicine, big pharma, big banks, big foundations, big research centers, some attached to big universities. And the current rise of treating young children with puberty blockers and hormones is a widespread scandal that has been named a medical experiment on children. Whereas transsexualism was mainly a male phenomenon in the past with males undertaking cross-sex hormones and surgery, today it is notably young women who are self-declaring as men in large numbers. The good news is that these young women who formerly identified as trans men or gender non-binary, are now de-transitioning. In this book, they speak movingly about their severances from themselves and other women, their escape from compulsive femininity, their sexual assaults, the misogyny they experienced growing up, and their journeys in recovering their womanhood. Doublethink: A Feminist Challenge to Transgenderism makes us aware of the consequences of a runaway ideology and its costs among them what is at stake when males are allowed to compete in female sports and when parents are not aware of school curricula that confuse sex with gender and that can facilitate a childs hormone treatments without parental consent.
Ecofeminism, Second Edition af Carol J. Adams (Editor); Lori Gruen (Editor)
This new edition of Ecofeminism: Feminist Intersections with Other Animals and the Earth begins with an historical, grounding overview that situates ecofeminist theory and activism within the larger field of ecocriticism and provides a timeline for important publications and events. Throughout the book, authors engage with intersections of gender, sexuality, gender expression, race, disability, and species to address the various ways that sexism, heteronormativity, racism, colonialism, and ableism are informed by and support animal oppression. This collection is broken down into three separate sections: -Affect includes contributions from leading theorists and activists on how our emotions and embodiment can and must inform our relationships with the more-than-human world -Context explores the complexities of appreciating difference and the possibilities of living less violently -Climate, new to the second edition, provides an overview of our climate crisis as well as the climate for critical discussion and debate about ecofeminist ideas and actions Drawing on animal studies, environmental studies, feminist/gender studies, and practical ethics, the ecofeminist contributors to this volume stress the need to move beyond binaries and attend to context over universal judgments; spotlight the importance of care as well as justice, emotion as well as reason; and work to undo the logic of domination and its material implications.
Feminism for women: The real route to liberation af Julie Bindel
Feminism strives for a world in which women are not oppressed. Feminism prioritises exposing and ending male violence towards women and girls.This is Julie Bindel's feminism, a definition born of 40 years at the front line of the feminist movement. Why then, she asks, is feminism the only social justice movement in the world that is expected to prioritise every other issue before pursuing its own objective of women's liberation? Why does the movement appear to be moving backwards, accommodating the rights and feelings of men and leaving women in the cold? Women make up half the global population yet why is feminism still treated as a minority movement?In this searing and ground-breaking book, Bindel deconstructs the many pervasive myths about feminism - Do women really want what men have? Can men be feminists? Are women liberated by sexual violation? - assessing whether feminism has achieved its goals and debunking theories that second wave feminism is irrelevant and one-dimensional.Bindel shines a light on the most important issues, including pornography, sexual violence and prostitution. Drawing on Bindel's own experiences, as well as countless interviews with women and girls of all ages and backgrounds (as well as contributions from commentators such as Gloria Steinem and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie), Feminism for Women presents a clear-sighted view of why feminism is a proud social movement that every woman on the planet benefits from.The invisible forces of misogyny affect us all.
Feminist and Queer Theory af L. Ayu Saraswati; Barbara L. Shaw
As women's studies departments and programs undergo rapid transformation in higher education, there has been a burgeoning demand for instructional material that addresses feminist and queer studies at all levels in the curricula. Feminist and Queer Theory: An Intersectional and TransnationalReader reflects this vibrantly expanding field and meets the urgent need for theory courses.Feminist and Queer Theory: An Intersectional and Transnational Reader is not simply a feminist theory text that includes queer theories; rather, it theorizes at the intersection of feminist and queer theories, and by doing so, transforms and reshapes the boundaries of the fields. The book invitesstudents to think critically about the limitations of understanding feminist theory as separate, but tangentially related, to queer theory and moves them beyond transnationalism as "additive" to U.S.-centered intersectional perspectives. The book frames feminist and queer inquiry as beingarticulated through each other and within a global context. It also provide new voices - scholarly, activist, and creative--inside and outside the U.S. that are shaping the field and selections that highlight the importance of im/migration and borders as well as science, technology, and digitalcultures.

Kvinner i filosofien : Romantikk, revolusjon, sosialt fellesskap af Kristin Gjesdal og Dalia Nassa (red.)
Finnes det kvinner i 1800-tallsfilosofien? I aller høyeste grad! For første gang på norsk presenteres arbeidene til ni kvinnelige filosofer i tradisjonen fra romantikk til fenomenologi: Germaine de Staël, Karoline von Günderrode, Bettina Brentano von Arnim, Hedwig Dohm, Clara Zetkin, Lou Andreas Salomé, Rosa Luxemburg, Edith Stein og Gerda Walther. Samlingen tydeliggjør deres sentrale stilling innenfor bevegelser som tysk idealisme, sosialisme, marxisme og fenomenologi. I en klar og engasjerende stil diskuteres sentrale spørsmål som: Hva er sannhet? Hva ligger til grunn for menneskelig fellesfølelse? Hvordan bør mennesket forholde seg til naturen? Hvordan bør det forholde seg til seg selv? Hvordan kan vi best tenke omkring kjønn og identitet? Hvordan bør vi respondere på sosial urettferdighet? Hva er den mest produktive forståelsen av menneskelig evne til empati og fellesskap? En samlende tråd gjennom samlingen er de enkelte filosofenes ønske om å skrive tilgjengelig, engasjert og henvende seg til et bredere publikum. Redaktørenes innledninger gir en oversikt over kvinners plass perioden og presenterer hver av de ni filosofene med henblikk på deres historiske betydning så vel som deres relevans for oss i dag.
Lige er ikke det samme som ens: fra A til Å om de to biologiske køn og ligeværd. af Birgitte Baadegaard
Denne bog handler om ligeværd – ikke ligestilling – mellem de to traditionelle biologiske køn: mand og kvinde. Ordet ligeværd stikker nemlig mange lag dybere end ordet ligestilling, der handler om at give kvinder lige muligheder i en ramme, som mænd i århundreder har defineret og værdisat. Det udgangspunkt er snarere tilpasning end reel ligestilling og har derfor intet med ligeværd at gøre.
Bogens mission er at skabe øget bevidsthed om statistiske kønsforskelle mellem mænd og kvinder. Den usunde dynamik, der udspiller sig mellem de to biologiske køn påvirker også minoritetsgrupper. Og dermed os alle.
Mapping Gendered Ecologies af K. Melchor Quick Hall and Gwyn Kirk (Editors)
This collection of women's racialized and gendered mappings of place, people, and nature includes the stories of teachers, organizers, activists, farmers, healers, and gardeners. From their many entry points, the contributors to this work engage crucial questions of coexistence with nature in these times of overlapping climate, health, economic, and racial crises.
Nej-klubben : et opgør med kvinders karriere-hæmmende arbejde af Laurie Weingart, Linda Babcock, Brenda Peyser & Lise Vesterlund
En praktisk guide til større ligestilling: Sådan frigør vi kvinders karrierer fra arbejde, der ikke bliver belønnet. Nej-klubben blev stiftet af fire kvinder med endeløse to-do-lister og med det formål at få deres arbejdsliv under kontrol. Selv når de løb hurtigere end alle andre, var de stadig bagud i forhold til deres mandlige kollegers løn og karriereforløb.Denne bog afslører resultatet af mere end ti års banebrydende forskning: at kvinder overalt er belastet med "ikke-forfremmende arbejde": planlægning af sommerfesten, screening af praktikanter, pleje af den tidskrævende klient eller simpelthen at hjælpe andre med deres arbejde. Professorerne Linda Babcock, Brenda Peyser, Lise Vesterlund og Laurie Weingart dokumenterer, hvordan kvinder overalt udfører disse opgaver. Denne ubalance efterlader kvinder overbebyrdede og gør, at virksomhederne mister indtægter, produktivitet og ikke udnytter deres største talenter.Nej-klubben viser, hvordan du laver små, men vigtige ændringer i dine egne arbejdsbyrder og træffer klogere beslutninger om det arbejde, du påtager sig. Samtidig belyser forfatterne, hvordan varige forandringer kræver, at organisationer revurderer, hvordan de tildeler og belønner arbejde for at udjævne vilkårene for alle deres medarbejdere. Med hårde data, personlige anekdoter fra kvinder af alle slags, arbejdspladsvurderinger til øjeblikkelig brug og innovative råd fra rådgivning i Fortune 500-virksomheder vil denne bog ændre samtalen om, hvordan vi fremmer kvinders karrierer og opnår ligestilling i det 21. århundrede.
Pink Hats and Ballots af Lydia Rose; Teresa M. Bartoli
The worldwide outcry from protesters of the 2017 Women's March made clear the connections of many related issues and the powerful connection to ecofeminism. Pink Hats and Ballots: An Ecofeminist Analysis of Women's Political Activism in the Age of Trump, Coronavirus, and Black Lives Matter provides an enlightening combination of history, federal policy changes, social science research, and ecofeminism to explain the extraordinary rise of women's political activism and the continued empowerment of minoritized individuals to resist oppression and engage in heightened new levels of political involvement. Environmental justice, racism, and social justice are central in analyzing the events encapsulating American politics between the 2016 and the 2020 Presidential elections culminating in the massive participation in 2020's Black Lives Matter protests during the COVID-19 pandemic. This book is vital reading for those new to activism and explains the connections between current issues and the exploitation of the environment.

The Essential Emma Goldman-Anarchism, Feminism, Liberation (Warbler Classics Annotated Edition) af Emma Goldman; Vivian Gornick (Foreword by)
Emma Goldman, the anarchist feminist political philosopher, was known throughout her lifetime as the "High Priestess of Anarchy." To the tabloids, she was "Red Emma, Queen of the Anarchists." Today, she is heralded as a founder of anarcha-feminism and remembered for her feminist credo: "If I can't dance, I don't want to be in your revolution." Over the course of an extraordinary revolutionary lifetime, Emma Goldman challenged a long list of towering adversaries: the police, the U.S. prison system, Anthony Comstock (champion of the anti-birth control Comstock laws), J. Edgar Hoover, and Vladimir Lenin. She was an early and outspoken critic of homophobia at a time when such a position was rare, including among anarchists, and mentored Margaret Sanger in the fight for birth control access. Her legacy has continued to inspire radical thinkers for a century. Historian Howard Zinn wrote a play about her life; artist Jenny Holzer used her writings in a searing print series. Though we tend to think of the history of radical political thought as overwhelmingly male, Goldman offers a fierce feminist intervention. This anthology organizes her most relevant writings, speeches, and interviews according to her perennial concerns, including marriage, prostitution, prisons and political violence. This new edition includes a foreword by Vivian Gornick, an interview of Goldman by pathbreaking journalist Nelly Bly, and a biographical timeline.
The European Union and Gender Equality Free, Thrive, Lead af Agnès Hubert.

It highlights the main milestones along the way, from equal pay to protection against domestic violence, from the first legislative measures to the impact of the covid-19 pandemic.
The Feminist Subversion of the Economy af Amaia Perez Orozco; Liz Mason-Deese Mason-Deese (Translator)
The political response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the pressures on the global capitalist economies has, once again, imposed the priority of markets over life. Add to this the climate crisis and, undoubtedly, the task of sustaining life continues to be privatized, made invisible, and feminized. We must ask: what does a dignified life look like, especially one that transforms the gendered labor divisions and a racialized, exploitative feminized care economy that falls mainly on the shoulders of women--from the household to the wider effects of the capitalist economy on social reproduction. At the same time, these questions are intimately connected with considerations of our environment. The Feminist Subversion of the Economy makes the conection between patriarchy, capitalism, and ecological crisis--and rallies women, the LGBTQ+ community, and movements worldwide to center gender and social reproduction in a vision for a just ecology and economy. Public intellectual, academic, and activist Amaia Pérez Orozco offers a vision beyond the myths of development (unlimited growth), wealth (accumulation of capital), and work (limited to waged labor) and, at the same time, accounts for the tasks, networks, and economic subjects that, materially and daily, guarantee that life keeps going. Newly translated and updated in collaboration with Liz Mason-Desse, who has won a PEN translation award for her work on feminist economics, The Feminist Subversion of the Economy shows the urgent need to radically and democratically discuss what we mean by a dignified life and how we can organize to sustain life collectively.
The fiction of Margaret Atwood af Fiona Tolan
Margaret Atwood is one of the most significant writers working today. Her writing spans seven decades, is phenomenally diverse and ambitious, and has amassed an enormous body of literary criticism.
In this invaluable guide, Fiona Tolan provides a clear and comprehensive overview of evolving critical approaches to Atwood's work. Addressing all of the author's key texts, the book deftly guides the reader through the most characteristic, influential, and insightful critical readings of the last fifty years.

The Intersectional Environmentalist af Leah Thomas
From the 2022 TIME100 Next honoree and the activist who coined the term comes a primer on intersectional environmentalism for the next generation of activists looking to create meaningful, inclusive, and sustainable change. The Intersectional Environmentalist examines the inextricable link between environmentalism, racism, and privilege, and promotes awareness of the fundamental truth that we cannot save the planet without uplifting the voices of its people -- especially those most often unheard. Written by Leah Thomas, a prominent voice in the field and the activist who coined the term "Intersectional Environmentalism," this book is simultaneously a call to action, a guide to instigating change for all, and a pledge to work towards the empowerment of all people and the betterment of the planet. Thomas shows how not only are Black, Indigenous and people of color unequally and unfairly impacted by environmental injustices, but she argues that the fight for the planet lies in tandem to the fight for civil rights; and in fact, that one cannot exist without the other. An essential read, this book addresses the most pressing issues that the people and our planet face, examines and dismantles privilege, and looks to the future as the voice of a movement that will define a generation.
The New Gender Paradox af Judith Lorber
Today, in Western countries, we are seeing both the fragmentation of the gender binary (the division of the social world into two and only two genders) and its persistence. Multiple genders, gender-neutral pronouns and bathrooms, X designations, and other manifestations of degendering are becoming common, and yet the two-gender structure of our social world persists. Underneath the persistence of the binary and its discriminatory norms and expectations lurks the continuance of men's power and privilege. So there is the continued need to valorize the accomplishments of women, especially those of denigrated groups. This succinct and thoughtful book by one of the world's foremost sociologists of gender shines a light on both sides of this paradox - processes in the fragmentation of gender that are undermining the binary and processes in the performance of gender that reinforce the binary, and the pros and cons of each. The conclusion of the book discusses why we haven't had a gender revolution and how degendering would go a long way in creating gender equality.
The Right Kind of Suffering af Rhoda Kanaaneh
From the overloaded courts with their constantly changing dates and appointments to the need to prove oneself the "right" kind of victim, the asylum system in the United States is an exacting and drawn-out immigration process that itself results in suffering. When anthropologist Rhoda Kanaaneh became a volunteer interpreter for Arab asylum seekers, she learned how applicants were pushed to craft specific narratives to satisfy the system's requirements. Kanaaneh tells the stories of four Arab asylum seekers who sought protection in the United States on the basis of their gender or sexuality: Saud, who relived painful memories of her circumcision and police harassment in Sudan and then learned to number and sequence these recollections; Fatima, who visited doctors and therapists in order to document years of spousal abuse without over-emphasizing her resulting mental illness; Fadi, who highlighted the homophobic motivations that provoked his arrest and torture in Jordan, all the while sidelining connected issues of class and racism; and Marwa, who showcased her private hardships as a lesbian in a Shiite family in Lebanon and downplayed her environmental activism. The Right Kind of Suffering is a compelling portrait of Arab asylum seekers whose success stories stand in contrast with those whom the system failed.
The Rise and Decline of Patriarchal Systems af Nancy Folbre
In this groundbreaking new work, Nancy Folbre builds on a critique and reformulation of Marxian political economy, drawing on a larger body of scientific research, including neoclassical economics, sociology, psychology, and evolutionary biology, to answer the defining question of feminist political economy- why is gender inequality so pervasive? In part, because of the contradictory effects of capitalist development- on the one hand, rapid technological change has improved living standards and increased the scope for individual choice for women; on the other, increased inequality and the weakening of families and communities have reconfigured gender inequalities, leaving caregivers particularly vulnerable. The Rise and Decline of Patriarchal Systems examines why care work is generally unrewarded in a market economy, calling attention to the non-market processes of childbearing, childrearing and the care of other dependents, the inheritance of assets, and the use of force and violence to appropriate both physical and human resources. Exploring intersecting inequalities based on class, gender, age, race/ethnicity, and citizenship, and their implications for political coalitions, it sets a new feminist agenda for the twenty-first century.
Unbound my story of liberation and the birth of the Me Too movement af Tarana Burke
From the founder and activist behind one of the largest movements of the twenty-first century, the me too movement, Tarana Burke debuts a powerful memoir about her own journey to saying those two simple yet infinitely powerful words and how she brought empathy back to an entire generation 'Searing. Powerful. Needed.' Oprah 'I will never stop thinking about this book.' Glennon Doyle Tarana didn't always have the courage to say me too. As a child, she reeled from her sexual assault, believing she was responsible. Unable to confess what she thought of as her own sins for fear of shattering her family, her soul split in two. One side was the bright, intellectually curious third generation Bronxite steeped in Black literature and power, and the other was the bad, shame ridden girl who thought of herself as a vile rule breaker, not of a victim. She tucked one away, hidden behind a wall of pain and anger, which seemed to work... until it didn't.
Feministiske tænkere af Dorte Marie Søndergaard
I tekstsamlingen ”Feministiske tænkere” præsenteres en oversættelse af udvalgte centrale tekster af feministiske tænkere fra retningen ”tredje-bølgefeminismen”. Tænkningen har været ualmindeligt indflydelsesrig i nyere tid og i forhold til at gentænke køn, som andet end blot mand/kvinde, hetero/homoseksuel, hvid/ikke-hvid og andre binære kategorier, som ikke tidligere har været under kritisk lup. Blandt andet af den grund har retningen haft betydning for nyere tænkning af samfund og demokrati og haft indflydelse på fag som f.eks. statskundskab, sociologi, antropologi, sociologi, filosofi og litteraturvidenskab. Tekstsamlingens forfattere udgøres af Judith Butler, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Lois McNay, Bronwyn Davies, Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Oyeronke Oyewumi, Sandra Harding, Donna Haraway.”

Beyond Gender: An advanced Introduction to Futures of Feminist and Sexuality Studies af Greta Olsen m.fl.
Arguing for the notion of multiple futurities over that of progressive waves, Beyond Gender combines theoretical work with practical applications to provide an advanced introduction to contemporary feminist and sexuality research and advocacy. This comprehensive monograph documents the diversification of gender-related disciplines and struggles, arguing for a multidisciplinary approach to issues formerly subsumed under the unified field of gender studies. Split into two parts, the volume demonstrates how the notion of gender has been criticized by various theories pertaining to masculinity, feminism, and sexuality, and also illustrates how the binary and hierarchical ordering system of gender has been troubled or overcome in practice: in queer performance, legal critique, the classroom, and textual analysis.
An Introduction to Women's Studies af Inderpal Grewal; Caren Kaplan
This anthology introduces students to the modern period's history of key ideas related to sexual difference, gender, race, class, and sexuality. While most introductory Women's Studies textbooks focus on the United States, even if they add multiculturalism to the discussion, this book looks at women in diverse locations around the world and encourages students to think about gender in a transnational rather than a purely U.S. context. The selections provide students in the U.S. with a way to understand points of view from other locations and cultures, especially crucial in the post-9-11 geopolitical situation. The transnational approach to understanding gender brings Women's Studies into an era of globalization by connecting women’s issues in the United States to women’s issues elsewhere. The book shows how colonialism and imperialism, as they spread across the world, shaped ideas about gender as much as other modern phenomena. It addresses issues of power and inequality by focusing on historical connections rather than solely on commonalties. The readings are truly interdisciplinary, drawing upon scholarly work in many disciplines and interdisciplinary fields as well as non-scholarly sources. Short essays introduce each of the book’s four sections, explaining the concepts and ideas behind the selection of readings.

Kjønnsteori af Ellen Mortensen
Kjønnsteorien er vokst fram fra den feministiske kritikken til i dag å være et eget fagfelt med sine egne distinkte spørsmål og grunnlagsproblemer. Disse spørsmålene har utvidet feminismens tidligere vektlegging av synliggjøring, representasjon, likestilling og frigjøring til også å angå grunnleggende aspekter ved konstitueringen av menneskets væren i verden.
I denne omfattende innføringen gis både en presentasjon av hva som er særegent ved de enkelte tilnærmingsmåtene og teoretikerne og hva som gjør kjønnsteori til et eget felt. Sentralt i boken står spørsmål som: Hva er kjønn? Hvordan har forestillingen om kjønn operert og forandret seg historisk? Hvilke forestillinger om mennesket, natur, kultur, språk og makt er det som ligger til grunn for at kjønn framstår slik det gjør? Hva er forholdet mellom kjønn og seksualitet, kjønn og klasse, kjønn og rase og mellom kjønn og teknologi?
Bokens redaktører har tilknytning til fagfeltene filosofi, litteraturvitenskap, sosiologi, historie og vitenskapsteori. I tillegg har de hentet inn en rekke andre fagpersoner fra fagfeltene nordisk, kunsthistorie, medievitenskap, zoologi, sosialantropologi og kulturvitenskap.

Rethinking Women's and Gender Studies af Ann Braithwaite (Editor); Catherine M. Orr (Editor); Diane Lichtenstein (Editor)
Rethinking Women¿s and Gender Studies re-examines the field¿s foundational assumptions by identifying and critically analyzing eighteen of its key terms. Each essay investigates a single term (e.g., feminism, interdisciplinarity, intersectionality) by asking how it has come to be understood and mobilized in Women¿s and Gender Studies and then explicates the roles it plays in both producing and shutting down possible versions of the field. The goal of the book is to trace and expose critical paradoxes, ironies, and contradictions embedded in the language of Women¿s and Gender Studies¿from its high theory to its casual conversations¿that relies on these key terms. Rethinking Women¿s and Gender Studies offers a fresh approach to structuring Feminist Theory, Senior Capstone, and introductory graduate-level courses in Women¿s and Gender Studies.
