Many leading feminists are locked into a politics that is based on liberal or socialist principles and do not want, or know, how to move away from these, even when this type of politics is failing to change many womens circumstances.

This book confronts feminism and challenges its relationship to philosophy, which the author argues impacts on the reception of poststructural theories, like deconstruction. It provides a narrative of why the potential for deconstruction has been denied, as well as where it has been taken on. It gives an account of deconstruction that tackles some of its more difficult aspects, namely its political applications. The book also outlines the history of Womens Studies as a discipline, that is, its institutionalization, and identifies its theoretical concerns as a social movement with a political agenda.

The book maps deconstructions impact on feminism in Australia and more specifically its introduction to Womens Studies programs.
