Summary and Info
This significant new study contains the work of anthropologists engaged in doing research on gender. The editors argue for the creation of an ethnography-based feminism that, at the same time, pays heed to what women in specific circumstances identify as their concerns and also recognizes contradictions inherent in the goals of a feminist anthropology. These essays grapple with a range of awkward issues, including feminism in international contexts, the invisibility of women's working lives, and the problems of voice and ethnographic representation. Referring to a variety of ethnographic contexts, and working from diverse perspectives, the contributors examine the multiple dilemmas and conflicts of gender and power.A volume which will not only constitute a significant contribution to the social sciences literature both theoretically and substantively, but will also place Canadian feminist anthropology on the cutting edge of global feminist anthropology. I strongly recommend it. Valda Blundell Carleton University
