This collection brings together contributions which address issues and debates within contemporary women's studies and feminism. The variety of feminist perspectives which emerge from these papers reveal the extent to which the diversities of women's experiences continue to reshape feminist knowledge and politics. A recurrent theme is how to work with these diversitites, and how to make connections which do not recreate hierarchies or oppressive practices, which privilege the experiences and aims of some women over those of others. The contributions here, from inside and outside the academy, give expression to the multiplicity of feminist voices which inform the educational and political development of women's studies in the 1990s.
