In wonderfully accessible and penetrating analyses, Marinucci makes the case that feminist and queer theory are inseparable allies – or should be. With its comprehensive appendix and carefully organized chapters, Feminism is Queer is an ideal text for teaching about gender, sexuality, and the practice of theorizing.'
Marjorie Jolles, Roosevelt University

'This brief yet comprehensive book is perfect for anyone who is interested in the origins and meanings of the concept ‘queer.’ Marinucci’s impressive interdisciplinary depth and breadth combine with a readily accessible writing style to make Feminism is Queer a lucid and intelligent treatment of an essentially complex and controversial concept.'
Nancy Slonneger Hancock, Northern Kentucky University

 

 






In Feminism is Queer, Mimi Marinucci provides a valuable introduction to the intimately related disciplines of gender and queer theory, and develops the innovative concept of queer feminism, which treats queer theory as being continuous with feminist theory. While there were significant conceptual tensions between second-wave feminism and traditional lesbian and gay studies, queer feminism offers a paradigm for understanding gender, sex and sexuality that overcomes this conflict in order to foster solidarity between those campaigning for women’s rights and those for LGBTQ rights.

This updated and expanded edition engages with the latest developments in feminism and queer theory, including the new forms of both feminism and 'antifeminism' which have developed within online communities, the growing prominence of trans experiences in popular media, and the relevancy of queer feminism to a new generation of feminist activists. Feminism is Queer remains the indispensable guide for anyone with an interest in gender, sexuality, and the connections between feminism and queer issues.













Mimi Marinucci is professor of philosophy and women’s and gender studies at Eastern Washington University. Her teaching and research are focused on feminism and philosophy, particularly as represented in popular culture. She is especially interested in popular culture as a medium for the production and dissemination of knowledge about who we are as women and men. She is also the founding editor of Wave 2.5: A Feminist Zine, a two-time Utne Independent Press Award nominee (2005, 2009).
