AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An investigation of the direction of feminism resulting from the controversy surrounding Helen Garner's book, 'The First Stone'. The author argues that it is inaccurate to suggest that overbearing laws and priggish feminism have hidebound relations between men and women. She also claims that young women feminists in this country offer a feminism that has a humane and flexible political ethos, while maintaining that feminism is an issue of human rights.'

'In recent times, a generational divide has emerged within feminism with discussion often centered on the differences between Baby Boomer feminists and younger women, regularly referred to as Generation X. This paper seeks to understand the intergenerational tensions by exploring the debates as they are played out in a number of popular texts. Karl Mannheim's theory of generation is mobilised in order to deepen our understanding of generations. His work has the potential to broaden the feminist generational debates beyond the well-worn stereotypes and offer new ways of thinking about generational discourse.' (Penelope Robinson).
