It can serve as a guide for the reader who wants to engage with feminism in a serious way.

From Our Editors

This book seeks to describe and analyse diversity by distinguishing three distinct paradigms of moral reasoning to be found within feminism. Using the writings of feminists themselves, the major strengths and weaknesses of each theory are considered, so that creative dialogue between them can be encouraged.
