Gender and Agency : Reconfiguring the Subject in Feminist and Social Theory Hardback
by Lois McNay
This book reassesses theories of agency and gender identity against the backdrop of changing relations between men and women in contemporary societies.
McNay argues that recent thought on the formation of the modern subject offers a one-sided account of agency, which underplays the creative dimension present in the responses of individuals.
