The term ‘Postfeminism’ sparks controversy and disagreement amongst legal thinkers.
In their new book ‘Feminism, Post Feminism and Legal Theory: Beyond the Gendered Subject?’ co-editors Dr Dorota Gozdecka and Dr Anne Macduff engage with this debate to examine the idea of postfeminism and assess its contemporary relevance.
The book explores a range of questions including: Does postfeminism describe an age that follows modernism, an age where identity politics has realised its goals and feminism is no longer needed? Or does postfeminism describe the feminism of a postmodernist age where identity can mean anything at all? Or, differently again, does the term capture a ‘new feminism’ that discredits feminism and attempts to reshape its political consciousness? And what might the answers to these questions mean for law and legal theory, and a feminist politics of law reform?
This book was written to help busy feminists, lawyers and law reformers locate multiple paths through the chaos created by living in a postfeminist world.
The book will be formally launched by esteemed Professor Rosanne Kennedy, who will present the highlights captured by the book, in a conversation with contributors Professor Margaret Thornton, Dr Dorota Gozdecka and Dr Anne Macduff.
