European feminisms, 1700-1950 : a political history by Karen M Offen( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This ambitious book explores challenges to male hegemony throughout continental Europe over the past 250 years. For general readers and those interested primarily in the historical record, it provides a comprehensive, comparative account of feminist developments in European societies, as well as a rereading of European history from a feminist perspective. By placing gender, or relations between women and men, at the center of European politics, it aims to reconfigure our understanding of the European past and to make visible a long but neglected tradition of feminist thought and politics. On another level the book seeks to disentangle some misperceptions and to demystify some confusing contemporary debates about the Enlightenment, reason, nature, and public vs. private, equality vs. difference. In the process, the author aims to show that gender is not merely 'a useful category of analysis', but that sexual difference lies at the heart of human thought and politics

Les féminismes en Europe, 1700-1950 : une histoire politique by Karen M Offen( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cet ouvrage ambitieux retrace l'histoire des défis féministes à l'hégémonie masculine à travers l'Europe continentale. Une grande place est accordée à la France mais l'auteure a rassemblé une riche documentation comparative. Son récit, qui se déroule sur deux cent cinquante ans, balaie tout l'espace européen, du Portugal à la Pologne, de la Grèce à la Finlande, de l'Irlande à l'Ukraine et de l'Espagne à la Scandinavie sans oublier les organisations féministes internationales et transnationales. Les objectifs de cette étude sont multiples. Les lecteurs y trouveront une vaste analyse comparative de l'activité féministe dans les pays d'Europe, une relecture de l'histoire européenne d'un point de vue féministe. À un autre niveau, cet ouvrage démêle un enchevêtrement d'idées fausses et démystifie des polémiques contemporaines : le débat sur les Lumières, et les oppositions nature et culture, raison et émotion, égalité et différence, public et privé. L'opinion de Karen Offen est que les féminismes sont bien plus que des "paradoxes" ou des "contradictions logiques" : ils sont affaire de politique autant sinon plus que de philosophie. La différence des sexes et ses conséquences sont au coeur même de la pensée et de la politique qui définissent la condition humaine."--Page 4 of cover
