The Futures of Feminism

Author(s): Valerie Bryson

Social Thought

This book makes the case for an inclusive form of socialist feminism that puts multiple disadvantaged women at its heart. It moves feminism beyond contemporary disputes, including those between some feminists and some trans women. Its combination of accessibility, new thinking and academic rigour will make it attractive to a wide market.Combining academic rigour with accessibility, the book demystifies some key feminist terms, including patriarchy and intersectionality, and shows their relevance to feminist politics today. It argues that the analysis of gender cannot be isolated from that of class or race, and that the needs of most women will not be met in an economy based on the pursuit of profit. Throughout, the book asserts the social, economic and human importance of the unpaid caring and domestic work that has been traditionally done by women. It concludes that there are some grounds for optimism about a future that could be both more feminist and more socialist.  This book makes the case for an inclusive form of socialist feminism that puts multiple disadvantaged women at its heart.
