Samenvatting

This book reassesses theories of agency and gender identity against the backdrop of changing relations between men and women in contemporary societies. McNay argues that recent thought on the formation of the modern subject offers a one-sided account of agency, which underplays the creative dimension present in the responses of individuals.

Recensie(s)

'This is a fine piece of theoretical work that deftly negotiates some complex debates. It is rigorous, scholarly and has something significant to say.' Feminist Theory 'Complex and elegantly written ... Anyone frustrated by the simple assertion that identity is like a trap which necessarily forecloses the prospect of true female agency will find this book to be a useful contribution to the ways we think about what it means to become a female subject in culture.' Canadian Journal of Sociology Online McNay's book would benefit very greatly from the use of examples, to demonstrate the power of the approach she endorses in relation to contemporary feminist dilemmas and contentions. European Journal of Social Theory
