Abstract

In this bold book, Naomi Zack insists that an unapologetic reclaiming of women’s commonality is what must drive forward feminism’s third wave. The author wants to move beyond a focus on intersectionality, which she argues has resulted in fragmentation that has prevented the establishment of common goals and basic empathy. The book seeks to offer a new model of feminism that will be ‘inclusive’. Outlined in the book’s eight chapters, this comprehensive framework consists of what Zack terms ‘inclusive’ feminist theories of psychol- ogy, social theory and history. Linking these components are her ‘relational’, non-biological definition of women and an emphasis on individual agency. The conclusion offers a utopian vision of women’s worldwide political rule.
