Does sex have a history? ‘Women’ and feminism (New Formations 1, Spring 1987)
Author: Denise Riley
What does it mean to ‚Äòbe‚Äô a woman? What meanings are ascribed to the category ‚Äòwomen‚Äô? And how might feminism best deal with these vexed questions? A broad historical sweep illuminates these and related questions, considering what the best relationship might be between ‚Äòwomen‚Äô and feminism, and arguing that a move towards non-gendered humanism is not good¬†enough.
