This collection of essays provides an insight into the status of feminist positions among female Spanish scholars. The focus is placed on the social and political achievements that feminism has attained since the transition to democracy in Spain. It gives an outline of the radical changes in the image of women. Above all, however, this reader illustrates the extent of academic research on feminist issues which has developed and become increasingly differentiated over the past 30 years.
This book is a dramatic example of the explosive development of feminism and the new status of women in Spain.
