"This book explores the achievements of British feminist
sociology in theory, methods and empirical research. It outlines
the barriers to the development of feminism and explores
contemporary challenges. It provides an unrivalled guide to the
origins of feminism in the discipline of sociology, analyses the
uneasy relationships between feminists and the founding fathers and
elucidates the opportunities and challenges presented by
post-modernism. The book was written in the spirit of trying to be
even-handed in its discussion of the various schools of feminism.
It draws on a variety of empirical areas, from science to
stratification and from healths and illness to the professions to
illustrate the depth and vitality of feminist perspectives.
