Product Description

From the Back Cover

Open Boundariesis a broad collection of reading with an interdisciplinary approach to Women's Studies.  Each chapter offers students a brief introduction, followed by excerpts and articles which present current debates through scholarly, fictive, journalistic, and personal narratives.  The new third edition consists of 39 contemporary readings, 22 of which are all new.  Short author biographies precede each reading, introducing students to current voices from the world of Canadian Women's Studies.  The text is organized into 5 chaptered units, covering the definition of ‘woman' in Canadian studies; the Changing Context of Activism; Engendering Violence ; Culture, the Body and Femininity; and Sexuality.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was purchased for a class. I found the readings interesting and enjoyed the specifically Canadian context. It's mostly a collection of major feminist writings by prominent writers in the field. It's a good introduction to gender studies. Do not buy it new. Any used copy will work just fine.
