Judith Grant's Fundamental Feminism offers a highly readable analysis of early feminist theorizing, a critical examination of feminist standpoint theories and feminist epistemologies, and an overview of current explorations in postmodern feminism. In each area she traces three central concepts, which she calls "core concepts," that emerged from early feminist writing and politics, and which she argues have become foundational for feminist theory. These concepts are: (1) Woman; (2) experience; and (3) personal politics.

In Fundamental Feminism, Judith Grant explores the evolution of feminist theory as well as the state of today's feminist thought. Pointing to the main problems within feminism, Grant calls for a substantial revision of the core concepts responsible for shaping today's feminist theory. Grant identifies and critiques three core concepts in feminist theory--"woman," "experience," and "personal politics"--from their origins in pamphlets and writings in the early women's liberation movement to their current construction in feminist thought. She connects a number of key debates in feminism today to the longstanding influence of these core assumptions. These debates include the hegemony of the white female perspective, the tension between anti-pornography and pro-sex feminists, and the challenges presented by postmodernism. Fundamental Feminism is provocative reading for anyone interested in the future of feminist theory and the power of feminist politics.
