'Reading this book made me aware of how much such a book is needed to awaken a dialogue between Marxism and feminism. I didn't agree with all that I read, but that's exactly what a book with this framework should do to awaken us.'
Dorothy Smith, University of Victoria
‘Reading this book, I was gripped by a feeling that it will mark a politically-necessary moment in the history of Women’s and Gender Studies as well as educational theories encompassing class, race, disability, sexuality and all axes of identity formation … this book is a pedagogy – a form of resistance.’
Sona Kazemi, Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies
'An important addition to the body of radical analysis that left feminists can use to educate ourselves about old and new theoretical, political and methodological debates on the left. It also is a signal that such debates are receiving new energy in the 21st century by new generations of left feminist intellectuals and activists dissatisfied with the academic compromises that institutionalized feminism has made, and the failure to incorporate feminist insights into Marxist-inspired theory and politics.'
Against the Current
'Discussions of democracy, finance capitalism, nationalism and imperialism release feminist theory from the confines of the so-called woman question by theorising the global social moment … held together by a commitment to dialectical inquiry and revolutionary feminist praxis.'
