Theorizing Feminism

A Cross-Cultural Exploration

By Chandrakala Padia

This book focuses on the challenges posed by feminist scholars to the various disciplines of Humanities and Social Sciences and their inherent androcentric bias and logocentrism. The book further highlights the contribution of Third World feminism in dismantling all sexist assumptions and misconstrued values that have ruled the disciplines all along. It also brings to the fore the Third World challenges to the essentialist, universalist, and monolithic assumptions of Western feminist discourse. It will be a veritable resource for scholars, researchers, and students interested in Feminist Studies, Political Theory, Gender Studies, and all other subjects of Humanities and Social Sciences.
