Abstract:

"Combines authoritative text with graphics and quotes from leading contributors in an introduction to more than eighty-five of the most important ideas, movements, and events that have defined feminism and feminist thought throughout history. Using the Big Ideas series' trademark combination of authoritative, accessible text and bold graphics, this book traces feminism and the feminist movement from its origins, through the suffragette movement of the 19th century, to recent developments such as the Everyday Sexism Project and the #MeToo movement. Entries explore and explain each idea, placing them in their social and cultural context. Packed with inspirational quotations, profiles of key individuals and turning points, and flowcharts and infographics explaining the most significant concepts clearly and simply, The Feminism Book is perfect for anyone with an interest in female empowerment."--Source of summary not specified.

"Women have been challenging the male domination of society for centuries. Yet it was not until the 1800s that feminism truly began as a movement, fighting for equality between the sexes and against the oppression of women and girls. Since that time, feminist activists, writers, and organizations have campaigned for women's rights, from securing the right to vote to creating the first birth-control pill. And with current and ongoing issues such as the wage gap and sexual harassment, feminism is as important now as it has ever been. Divided into six major sections that chart the chronology of the movement, The Feminism Book examines more than 100 of the most significant events, campaigns, and ideas that have shaped feminism the world over. This book profiles many remarkable and influential thinkers, from early pioneers like Mary Wollstonecraft and Betty Friedan to prominent contemporary feminists, such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Malala Yousafzai. It gives the reader a thorough overview of the feminist landscape across different countries and historical periods, covering leading ideas such as sexual double standards and the definition of female beauty. Packed with inspiring quotations, bold graphics, and accessible text, The Feminism Book is the perfect introduction to the groundbreaking ideas behind one of the most important movements in history."--Jacket.

A comprehensive introduction to the most important ideas, movements, and events that have defined feminism and feminist thought throughout history. Entries explore and explain each idea, placing them in their social and cultural context. -- adapted from jacket.
