Description

Feminist programming, no matter the venue, provides opportunities for young girls and women, as well as men, to acquire leadership skills and the confidence to create sustainable social change. Offering a wide-ranging overview of different types of feminist engagement, the chapters in this volume challenge readers to critically examine accepted cultural norms both in and out of schools, and speak out about oppression and privilege. To understand the various pathways to feminism and feminist identity development, this collection brings together scholars from education, women's studies, sociology, and community development to examine ways in which to integrate feminism and women's studies into education through pedagogy, practice, and activism.show more

Review quote

"With intellectual rigor and passion, the editors of Improving Lives through Feminism not only understand the conspicuous state of feminism, but also emphasize the important concept that reflection, activism, pedagogy, radical love, and sharing one's journey into feminism as practice are the keys to improving the lives of girls and women. I salute these authors for pushing for more intersectional examples of feminism that represent real women and their everyday lives." --Bettina L. Love, Associate Professor of Education, University of Georgia "It's hard to remember the last time I read a book and came away with solid ideas both for practices I could use in the classroom and also for my work as a feminist writer. So if you are teaching-be it in a classroom, a community center, or your kitchen-then I urge you to read Feminist Pedagogy, Practice, and Activism. Through a blend of narrative and analysis, these teachers and activists offer innovative ideas, lessons learned over the years, and research on the transformations that happen when an intersectional and engaged feminism is at the center of the educational experience." ---Daisy Hernandez, Professor of English, Miami University "This radical collection serves to reclaim and enact feminism's grassroots challenge to societal inequities. Feminist Pedagogy, Practice, and Activism reads like a playbook for dismantling privilege and oppression. It's an essential read for anyone seriously engaged in teaching for social justice." --Lyn Mikel Brown,Professor of Education, Colby Collegeshow more
