This lively narrative, touching on women's and gender studies, feminist politics, history, and sociology, explores a refreshing take on a subject matter often loaded with assumptions. Feminist theories are viewed through the critical intersections of race, class, sexuality, age, and ability, and are embedded in the experiences of everyday life, allowing Bromley to engage readers in doing theory, in making sense of concepts like "power" and "privilege," and in effecting social change.

Join us for this exciting book launch!

Author Victoria L. Bromley is an Assistant Professor at the Pauline Jewett Institute of Women's and Gender Studies at Carleton University.

This event is co-organized by Octopus Books & The Pauline Jewett Institute of Women's and Gender Studies, Carleton University
