Reviews

'[A] resolutely interrogatory body of essays... Feminist Futures? is an admirable inquiry, one question mark that inevitably raises many more.' - Laura Baggaley, Times Literary Supplement

'Feminist Futures?, like feminism itself, [is] a polyvocal interrogation of complex issues which can have no single articulation or solution, but in which many different voices speak of common concerns.' - Laura Baggaley, Times Literary Supplement

''For those interested in women and performance, it is an absolutely critical book.' - Erin Striff, Modern Drama
