Women Making Time

Contemporary Feminist Critique and Cultural Analysis

Edited by: Elizabeth McMahon, Brigitta Olubas

How do women experience time in the modern world? What connections can be drawn between time, action, and ethical human relations? From vantage points across the humanities and social sciences, Women Making Time looks at how women fashion understandings of the past, present, and future. The book reviews the ways in which feminist issues have been reduced to generational disputes between 1970s and 1990s. Feminism has always looked towards the future when envisaging and enacting social change. At the same time, feminists have sought to recuperate forgotten and overlooked moments, usually through response to the constraints faced by particular women. Women Making Time is a rich and diverse collection of essays that moves through the complementary domains of past and future and into the complex now of aesthetic and cultural production. By valuing the processes of loss and excess, the book illuminates the complex banalities, achievements, and continuities of women's experiences.
