Young women today have benefited from the strides made by grassroots social activists in the 1960s and 1970s, yet they are hesitant to identify themselves as feminists and seem apathetic about carrying the torch of older generations to redress persistent sexism and gender-based barriers. Contesting the notion that we are in a post-feminist age, this provocative collection of original essays identifies a third wave of feminism. The contributors argue that the next generation needs to develop a politicized, collective feminism that both builds on the strategies of second wave feminists and is grounded in the material realities and culture of the twenty-first century. Organized in five sections that mirror the stages of consciousness-raising, this is an engaging, often edgy, look at a broad range of perspectives on the diversity, complexity, multiplicity, and playfulness of the third wave. It is also a call to action for new voices to redefine a feminism that is not only personally aware but also politically involved.

This revised and expanded edition, new in paperback, provides a definitive collection on the current period in feminism known by many as the 'third wave'. Three sections - genealogies and generations, locales and locations, politics and popular culture - interrogate the wave metaphor and, through questioning the generational account of feminism, indicate possible future trajectories for the feminist movement. New to this edition are an interview with Luce Irigaray, a foreword by Imelda Whelehan as well as newly commissioned chapters.

Our world today is not only a world in crisis but also a world in profound movement, with increasingly large numbers of people joining or forming movements: local, national, transnational, and global. The dazzling diversity of ideas and experiences recorded in this collection capture something of the fluidity within campaigns for a more equitable planet. This book, taking internationalism seriously without tired dogmas, provides a bracing window into some of the central ideas to have emerged from within grassroots struggles from 2006 to 2010. The essays here cross borders to look at the politics of caste, class, gender, religion, and indigeneity, and move from the local to the global. Contributors include Taiaiake Alfred, Tariq Ali, Daniel Bensaïd, Hee-Yeon Cho, Ashok Choudhary, Lee Cormie, Jeff Corntassel, Laurence Cox, Guillermo Delgado-P, Andre Drainville, David Featherstone, Christopher Gunderson, Emilie Hayes, François Houtart, Fouad Kalouche, Alex Khasnabish, Xochitl Leyva Solano, Roma Malik, David McNally, Roel Meijer, Eric Mielants, Peter North, Shailja Patel, Emir Sader, Andrea Smith, Anand Teltumbde, James Toth, Virginia Vargas, and Peter Waterman.

This book outlines a compelling new agenda for feminist theories of identity and social relations. Using Lacanian psychoanalysis with feminist epistemology, the author sets out a groundbreaking psychoanalytic social theory. Campbell's work offers answers to the important contemporary question of how feminism can change the formation of gendered subjectivities and social relations. Drawing on the work of third wave feminists, the book shows how feminism can provide new political models of knowing and disrupt foundational ideas of sexual identity. Kirsten Campbell engages the reader with an original intepretation of Lacanian psychoanalysis and offers a compelling argument for a fresh commitment to the politics of feminism. Jacques Lacan and Feminist Epistemology will be essential reading for anyone with interests in gender studies, cultural studies, psychoanalytic studies or social and political theory.

Feminismus ist hip. Beyoncé und Emma Watson bekennen sich zum »F-Wort«, Taylor Swift sowieso. Eine ganze Marketingindustrie schreibt sich »Empowerment« auf die Fahnen, um damit so gut wie jedes Produkt, von Unterwäsche bis Frühstücksflocken, an die Frau zu bringen. Was als politische Bewegung für soziale Gerechtigkeit begonnen hat, scheint heute kaum noch mehr als ein Shoppingtipp in einem großen, bunten Markt zu sein, der uns Lösungen für Probleme und Problemzonen verkauft, die erst das System zu solchen macht. Der Feminismus als Marke setzt individuelle Selbstverwirklichung über kollektive Solidarität. Andi Zeisler, Gründerin und Herausgeberin des *Bitch Magazine,* nimmt in ihrem höchst unterhaltsamen Buch eine schillernde Reihe von Beispielen aus Popkultur, Medien und Werbung unter die Lupe und zeigt, wie der Feminismus vereinnahmt und verwässert wurde. »Ermächtigung« ist in aller Munde, auf der anderen Seite hat die Wahl Donald Trumps zum US-Präsidenten gezeigt, dass Sexismus auf erschreckende Art salonfähig ist. Unerschrocken und mit beißendem Witz erzählt dieses Buch, wie wir es dazu haben kommen lassen, und es erinnert uns daran, dass mit Feminismus eigentlich einmal etwas anderes gemeint war.
