A powerful critique of the stories that feminists tell about the past four decades of Western feminist theory

About the Author

Clare Hemmings is Reader in Feminist Theory and Director of the Gender Institute at the London School of Economics. She is the author of Bisexual Spaces: A Geography of Gender and Sexuality, co-author of Practising Interdisciplinarity in Gender Studies, and a member of the Feminist Review Collective.


"Whatever happens to Anglo-European feminist theory and politics in the future, the way we look at its past will never be the same again. This extraordinary book identifies the revolutionary elements of a truly global feminist sensibility so urgently required in the present: accountability, reflexivity, and an ability to grasp the intersections between different forms of inequality and power." Vron Ware, co-author of Out of Whiteness: Color, Politics, and Culture "Why Stories Matter is an exciting and impressive book, one that cannot fail to have an impact on the feminist academic community. Clare Hemmings contributes to radical new understandings of feminist theory by brilliantly synthesizing the debates that currently animate the field, and then intervening in ways that force the rethinking of accepted wisdom." Rosi Braidotti, Director, Centre for the Humanities, Utrecht University
