Feminism Without Women: Culture and Criticism in a "Postfeminist" Age (Japanese Studies)

From the Back Cover
Offering a multi-faceted response to the shift within feminist theory from a woman-centered critical practice to an increasingly male-oriented 'gender studies, ' 'Feminism Without Women' assesses recent trends in feminist thought by discussing social issues relevant to feminism: women and war, the controversy within feminism over lesbian S&M, the intensification of racism under Reagan and Bush, and the emergence of 'male feminism.'
