Feminist Foundations Summary

Feminist Foundations: Toward Transforming Sociology by Edited by Kristen A. Myers

There can be no doubt that feminism has wrought enormous changes on the social sciences in general and sociology in particular. The contributors to this volume were asked to write about key pieces of feminist scholarship that had particularly influenced their sociological thinking. In addition, the editors invited major feminist scholars to comment and reflect upon the articles in each section. Rather than organizing the book by substantive subject areas, the editors' vision sees sociology as an integrated discipline where feminist contributions have influenced the shape of the whole by similarly influencing the distinct parts.
