Challenging the notion of feminism as a unified discourse, this second edition ofThe Feminism and Visual Culture Readerassembles a wide array of writings that address art, film, architecture, popular culture, new media and other visual fields from a feminist perspective.

The Feminism and Visual Culture Readercombines classic texts with six specially commissioned pieces, all by leading feminist critics, historians, theorists, artists, and activists.
