ABOUT THIS BOOK
"Construing 'community' extremely broadly, from personal friendship to global dreams, this imaginative collection reveals the diversity of women's experiences in both traditional and feminist communities."

--Alison M. Jaggar, Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, University of Colorado at Boulder

This rich collection of essays explores a range of feminist perspectives on the importance of community to women's social, cultural, and political relationships. From the personal to the ethnographic to the theoretical, these essays discuss such topics as the viability of lesbian separatism, women and the Holocaust, interracial solidarity among women, the flaws in nonfeminist communitarianism, and the revolutionary prospects of feminist communities.
