Summary
"This book challenges the idea that women are simply victims of patriarchal systems. The editors argue that "Women-as-victim" is not an emancipatory cry that encourages all women to join efforts in combating patriarchy. Rather, the label "victim" is, at its core, highly analogous to right-wing, conservative agendas that keep women politically passive. The authors of this collection celebrate the various forms of resistance that women exemplify at individual and collective levels."--BOOK JACKET
