Feminist Communication Theory is a book "of" and "for" feminist communication theorists, providing the potential to help individuals understand the human condition, name personal experiences and engage these experiences through storytelling, and give useful strategies for achieving justice. Lana F. Rakow and Laura A. Wackwitz examine the work of feminist theorists over the past two decades who have challenged traditional communication theory, contributing to the development of feminist communication theory by identifying its important contours, shortcomings, and promise.

"This is a remarkable book that embraces the challenge of rethinking communication theory. Much more inclusive than most communication volumes, this guidebook offers a rich diversity of voices, along with a conceptual framework for remaking communication theory. Illuminating, innovative, eloquent-and transforming."

-- Cheris Kramarae

"This is a book not only of and for feminist communication theory, but of and for feminists. After a preface that marks and remarks in creative ways how the personal is political, Rakow and Wackwitz offer a compelling account of the need and potential of feminist theorizing for social and structural transformation. The collection represents a range of experiences, problems, voices, and thus will be useful to scholars, students, and activists."

-- Linda Steiner

"Feminist Communication Theory will be a classic work for all scholars teaching the field of feminist communication studies. We've waited a long time for a compilation that is theoretically innovative and sophisticated, and Rakow and Wackwitz provide it, along with a series of readings immensely valuable for classroom use. I highly recommend this work and plan to use it in my own teaching."

-- Andrea Press
