Review " Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions is the best textbook for Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies on the market. My students really come to feel invested in the material, so much so that many of them take up activist work. Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions plays a big role in this transformation because the concepts and the readings are carefully constructed to engage students and show them the importance of what they're studying. It brings insightful discussions and primary texts together to foster insightful and productive conversations among students and instructors." --Julie Goodspeed-Chadwick, Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus "I love Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions. It is by far the best text I've used for the Introduction to Gender Studies class. It's a really great all-around textbook--well-written and well-organized--about as close to perfect as you can get."--Robin Ryle, Hanover College " Gendered Voices, Feminist Visions is simply one of the best readers for use in an introductory course. My favorite feature of this text is how it attempts to connect the production of knowledge within the classroom to life outside of the classroom. The many 'Learning Activities' and 'Ideas for Activism' found in each chapter allow students to begin recognizing that what they study in the course has actual relevance and application to their own lives, their personal histories, and to their larger communities."--Jan Wilson, University of Tulsa About the Author Susan M.
