Confronting Beauty, Pornography, and the Future of Feminism

eBook - 1998
Rate this:
This volume examines controversial faultlines in contemporary feminism--pornography, the beauty myth, sadomasochism, prostitution, and the issue of rape--from an original and provocative perspective. Lynn Chancer focuses on how, among many feminists, the concepts of sex and sexism became fragmented and mutually exclusive. Exploring the dichotomy between sex and sexism as it has developed through five current feminist debates, Chancer seeks to forge positions that bridge oppositions between unnecessary (and sometimes unwitting) "either/or" binaries. Chancer's book attempts to incorporate both the need for sexual freedom and the depth of sexist subordination into feminist thought and politics.
