Radical Feminism: Feminist Activism in Movement

by Finn Mackay
£15.99   paperback  Palgrave Macmillan (2015)

Radical Feminism: Feminist Activism in Movement by Finn Mackay Feminist activism is enjoying a global resurgence. A new wave of feminists is taking to the streets in protest against rape, abuse, prostitution and inequality, and asserting a powerful new vision for women's liberation. The future of feminism has become a global march for justice and action demanding an end to male violence against women.
 
In this ground-breaking book from one of the leading feminist activists of our generation, Finn Mackay advances a radical and pioneering feminist manifesto for today's audience that exposes the real reasons why women are still oppressed and what feminist activism must do to counter it. Through a vibrant and original account of the global Reclaim the Night March and drawing on interviews with activists from across the generations, this book confronts the controversial issues facing men, women and feminism in contemporary society to shatter the illusion that equality has been reached. Translating classic texts and charting the changes and challenges of the feminist movement from the 1970s onwards, Mackay argues that feminist activism continues to be urgent and relevant today.
