McMillan, Carol
'Women, Reason and Nature' argues an original and provocative case: that feminism, far from presenting a radical challenge to sexism, actually shares its most fundamental and mistaken assumptions about women's place in society. 165pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Cornell, Drucilla
In "Beyond Accommodation", Drucilla Cornell offers a view of what feminist theory can offer contemporary women. She shows how a way to ethical feminism can be found through an alliance with deconstruction. Cornell challenges the essentialist and naturalist accounts of feminine sexuality offered by the feminist legal scholars Catharine MacKinnon and Robin West, and the French feminists Julia Kristeva, Luce Irigaray, and Helene Cixous. She shows that these accounts actually entrap women, curtailing feminine sexual difference, giving credibility to the masculine fantasy of woman and so reinstating the gender hierarchy. To find a way past essentialism, Cornell looks to recent French philosophy and offers an original reading of Derrida, utilizing his challenge to Lacanian theory and his allegory of the feminine to allow for the affirmation of woman. Cornell's work has broad implications for feminist jurisprudence which is concerned with the harms to women that do not "exist" within the current legal system. She offers an impassioned defence of women's rights and a lucid analysis of the dilemmas of postmodern feminism. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of women's studies and continental philosophy. 239pp. N.B. Some underlining throughout. Previous owners inscription to ffep.

Ceplair, Larry
Sarah Moore Grimke and Angelina Emily Grimke were the first women in America coming from a southern slave-holding family to speak publicly on behalf of the abolition of slavery. Creating a stir of controversy soon afterwards during the 1830s especially with the force of their testimony before the Massachusetts State Legislature, they soon found themselves defending publicly and at length the right of women to speak on moral and political issues and on the end of the subordination of women. The editor of this collection of eloquent political writings, Larry Ceplair, has written a critical introduction situating the Grimkes' in an historical and political context in which he describes the significance of their thought and work. Of special interest is the inclusion of writings documenting the Grimke sisters activities that preceded by 11 years the first woman's rights convention in America, held at Seneca Falls, N.Y. 380pp. N.B.
