a) Introductions and Overviews

Note: If you’re new to gender theory, five good places to start are Wearing’s Gender, Hughes’ Contemporary Australian Feminism, Grieves’ and Burns’ Australian Women: New Feminist Perspectives, Lucy Smith’s Equality: Understanding Feminism, and Richardson’s and Robinson’s Thinking Feminist. Beasley’s What is Feminism, Anyway? is a university-level introduction. Also see references under “Women’s Studies” below.
