The Sexual Dynamics of History

£24.99

Product description

Good condition with wear to covers. Age appropriate colouring to pages. Creases to spine.

Where feminist history is going is still a matter of controversy. The Sexual Dynamics of History argues that it is men's power that shapes women's experience, but that women have found ways to survive and at time united to challenge it.

The authors link the past with the present, covering issues such as women's emigration, the fight for free legal abortion in the 1930s, rape and sedeuction in the 19th century, the invention of the concept of 'the frigid women'. The book's articles cover four areas in which the confrontation between men and women is played out: sexual violence, domestic ideology. women in public life, and sexuality.

The Sexual Dynamics of History presents feminist historical work as inseparable from an active politics for today. it gives advice on how to go about historical research for women who wish to take up this challenge.
