"Written with verve and purpose." The Guardian

For some people, the word "feminism" conjures up the fearful spectre of gender competition, the "sex war" and man-hating females.

Introducing Feminism cuts through the myths surrounding the subject and provides an incisive account of the women's movement from its suprisingly recent birth in the French Revolution to the worldwide explosion of women's liberation in the 1970s and the conservative backlash of the Reagan and Thatcher years of the 1980s. It looks at the achievments of feminism and the challenges still confronting women throughout the world as we enter 21st century.

This is timely guide to the struggle for women's rights -- a stormy history of conservative male opposition from the outside and disagreements within the movement. Susan Alice Watkins, Marisa Rueda and Martaue Rodriguez have created a highly entertaining canvas of words and pictures which tells the story of some very remarkable women, past and present.
