Book Description

Review 'A lively introduction, refreshing in its accessibility and its philosophical engagement. Whether writing on pornography or on the wearing of veils, Saul's jargon-free discussion sets the standards for rigour and clarity. It shows the point of thinking philosophically about concrete political issues, and, better still, shows readers how to do it.' Rae Langton, University of Edinburgh 'Saul's accessible and engaging introduction to philosophical issues in feminism will challenge students of all political persuasions. Modelling good philosophical method all the way, Saul draws her readers into some of the most important and interesting controversies of contemporary gender studies. A highly useful text.' Louise M.
