Varieties of Feminism - Myra Ferree.

Varieties of Feminism - Myra Ferree. Stanford University Press. Stanford, California. Myra Marx Ferree is at the forefront of the new political turn in gender scholarship. Julia Adams, Yale University. In light of her unmatched body of work on the comparative development of feminism in Germany and the United States, I assumed that Ferree had exhausted her insights on the topic.

Varieties of Feminism investigates the development of German feminism by contrasting it with women's movements that arise in countries, like the United States, committed to liberalism. With both conservative Christian and social democratic principles framing the feminist discourses and movement goals, which in turn shape public policy gains, Germany provides a tantalizing case study of gender politics done differently.

Feminism in Germany has its earliest roots in the lives of women who challenged conventional gender . Varieties of Feminism: German gender politics in global perspective, Stanford University Press 2012, ISBN 978-0-8047-5760-7.

Feminism in Germany has its earliest roots in the lives of women who challenged conventional gender roles as early as the Medieval period. From the early Medieval period and continuing through to the 18th century, Germanic law assigned women to a subordinate and dependent position relative to men. Salic (Frankish) law, from which the laws of the German lands would be based, placed women at a disadvantage with regard to property and inheritance rights.

Ferree and Mueller (2004, p. 598) claim that " gendered repertories of contention are strategic responses to institutions that structure oppression and opportunity along lines of gender " and that situate men and women in different social locations.

Varieties of Feminism investigates the development of German feminism by contrasting it with women's movements that arise in countries, like the United States, committed to liberalism. With both conservative Christian and social democratic principles framing the feminist discourses and movement goals, which in turn shape public policy gains, Germany provides a tantalizing case study of gender politics done differently. The German feminist trajectory reflects new political opportunities created first by national reunification and later, by European Union integration, as well as by historically established assumptions about social justice, family values, and state responsibility for the common good. Tracing the opportunities, constraints, and conflicts generated by using class struggle as the framework for gender mobilization―juxtaposing this with the liberal tradition where gender and race are more typically framed as similar―Ferree reveals how German feminists developed strategies and movement priorities quite different from those in the United States.
