Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions

Classic and Contemporary Readings

Seventh edition

Susan M. Shaw and Janet Lee

Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions: Classic and Contemporary Readings, Seventh Edition, is a balanced collection of classic, conceptual, and experiential selections. Accessible and student-friendly, the readings reflect the great diversity of women's experiences. Framework essays provide context and connections for students, while features like learning activities, ideas for activism, and questions for discussion provide a strong pedagogical structure for the readings.

New to this Edition:

  • Fifty-eight new readings, including more selections by young feminist writers, covering contemporary topics like disability and social justice, trans*masculinities, transgender issues, Cardi B, queer Muslim women, immigration policies, human trafficking, #SayHerName, sexual assault on campus, military femininities, white supremacist women, activism, and more
  • Revised chapter framework essays reflecting the most up-to-date research and theory in the field
  • A new feature in each chapter--"The Blog"--features posts written by Susan Shaw when she was blogging for The Huffington Post from 2015-2017. While most of these brief pieces were written in response to current events, the feminist lens that they offer remains timely, and the topics are still important for feminist conversations.
  • A new title--Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions--represents the shift from an essentialized notion of "woman" to a broader understanding of gender as socially constructed categories that shape our lives. This also reflects the renaming of academic programs nationwide from "Women's Studies" to "Women and Gender Studies" or just "Gender Studies."
