Subordinationpresents a survey of some of the most important ideas developed within feminism since the 1970s. Among the central themes addressed are: the origins of women’s subordination; the private/public split; the nature and the role of domestic labour; the impact of psychoanalysis on feminist theory; the relationship between the State and women’s subordination. One of the book’s purposes is to draw together strands of thought and debate often kept separate. Throughout, the major theoretical developments in Britain, the United States and Australia are reviewed within a comparative perspective. Consistently, the focus of attention is on how, and how far, theorists in these countries have been able to point to ways of explaining the changing but enduring nature of sexual inequalities.

What are the implications of contemporary feminism for sociological theory? In this volume, leading feminist researchers consider these implications, focusing on: the feminist critique and re-evaluation of existing theories; new concepts and areas of research; interdisciplinary linkages; and the creation of a new sociological paradigm. Contributors highlight the important feminist theoretical work which has remained outside of sociological theory, and argue for its inclusion into the mainstream. As such this book is a much needed contribution to the literature in sociological theory, and feminist studies.

* What is the most significant aspect of current literature on gender? * How does this literature engage with social theory? * How does the recognition of gender shift the central arguments of social theory? We know that gender defines and shapes our lives. The question addressed by Gender and Social Theory is that of exactly how this process occurs, and what the social consequences, and the consequences for social theory, might be. The emergence of feminist theory has enriched our understanding of the impact of gender on our individual lives and the contemporary social sciences all recognise gender differentiation in the social world. The issue, however, which this book discusses is the more complex question of the extent to which social theory is significantly disrupted, disturbed or devalued by the fuller recognition of gender difference. We know that gender matters, but Mary Evans examines whether social theory is as blind to gender as is sometimes argued and considers the extent to which a greater awareness of gender truly shifts the concerns and conclusions of social theory. Written by an author with an international reputation, this is an invaluable text for students and an essential reference in the field.

Contributors come from the UK, Australia, South Africa and Canada and many have professional experience as social workers. They appraise the key issues in the contested field of postmodernism and feminism and focus on their applications to practice, research and education in social work.

*How were the foundations of sociological theory shaped by an implicit masculinity? *Did classical sociology simply reflect or actively construct theories of sexual difference? *How were alternative accounts of the social suppressed in sociology's founding moments? *Does the masculine subject still lurk beneath the allegedly generic individual in modern sociological theory? The focus of this edited volume is on the problematic engendering of classical and contemporary sociological theory. Feminist interventions in sociology continue to be regarded as marginal to the enterprise of sociological theorizing, resulting in a truncated vision of the scope and concerns of sociological theory. This collection challenges this narrow vision, and contributes to expanding the conventional diet of sociological theory. In part one, contributors interrogate the classical canon, exposing the masculinist assumptions that saturate the conceptual scaffolding of sociology. In part two, contributors consider the long-standing and problematic relation between sociology and feminism, retrieving voices marginalized within or excluded from canonical constructions of sociological theory. In part three, contributors engage with key contemporary debates, explicitly engendering ostensibly gender-neutral accounts of the social. This collection is unique in that it goes beyond a critical feminist interrogation of sociological theory to develop a politics of reconstruction, working creatively with the sociological heritage to induce a more adequate conceptualisation of the social.
