A friend who is revamping his feminist philosophy syllabus (upper-level, undergraduate course) writes that he finds his students to be friendly to feminism but “also inclined to think that we’re ‘post-feminist.’” His query continues, help a brother out:
So, I’m looking for a book that helps to motivate the project of the class and counter the claim that feminism did its work and everything is fine now. To do so, it should be relatively recent (with current data and examples). I’d prefer that it be a book, since I’ve found that it’s nice to unify and bring cohesion to the first few weeks of the semester, but individual articles could work, too. Do you have any suggestions?
I suggested Susan Brison’s Aftermath, my go-to book for demonstrating that feminist philosophy is about life-and-death matters which continue. Suggestions very welcome!
