Feminism
can no longer be seen as a unified tradition of social thought. Discuss
the more significant divisions in contemporary feminist theory including
the different historical “generations” or “waves” of feminism, the broader
categorical divisions, and the existing political divisions. In your
discussion, draw attention to the points of similarity and the points of
difference between these different branches of feminist thought. To what
extent may feminism be regarded as an independent and distinctive theory
of society? Try to include some references to the relevant course readings
in your discussion.
