    I read the 4th edition which included several new articles that rounded out feminist perspectives on intersectional issues wonderfully This book transformed how I think about the role of women’s bodies I do wish there were recent articles following up on many of the topics discussed because I think ideas about women’s bodies have shifted in the last 20 25 years but since I am not a feminist scholar I don’t have a clear understanding of how they’ve shifted

    Female bodies as the author shows have never been thought of as belonging to the individual female This concept has always had some male justification based on religious scientific andor medical belief Historically female bodies were thought to be property of the father to be passed onto a husband While treatment of females has in seen improvement in many areas we still find that women today are not treated as euals various authorities’ still issue opinion that female bodies andor minds are inferior to men’s I think that in reality while we do not see the mass public acceptance of discriminationviolence toward women today many attitudes have not changed Sometimes advances in situations can lull people into a false contentment and I think this is evident in gender eualitarian issues

    Very dense reading in some areas and delightfully uick yet informative in others I would keep in mind the 1998 copyright date when reading as I felt some of the articles were woefully outdated however even a few of the obviously outdated articles got me in thinking in ways I hadn't before especially the last couple on fetal rights vs mother's rights Overall I'd say it's still with skimming and actually reading any of the articles that seem interesting after a page or two
