"The book explores what has happened in Mexican feminism in the last thirty five years. The essays compiled in this book seek to transmit and retransmit knowledge, reflections and experiences of feminists like Marta Lamas with the goal of opening up dialogue and debate to new generations. Drawing from her many years of activism and anthropological scholarship, Marta Lamas has written four texts that present her work as a thinker and as an organizer: the political development of a wing of the movement, affirmative action in the workplace, conceptual advances in regards to gender, and disagreements among feminists. In regards to method, Lamas presents her reflections as a member of the feminist movement and pairs this history with her own theoretical analysis as a feminist anthropologist, keenly interested in social constructions of gender, sexuality and nation. The audience for the book would be a general feminist audience in addition to academic readers in anthropology, history, gender studies, sociology and Latin American studies"--
„Feminisms un maskulīnisms” ir pētījums par maskulīnisma, feminisma un to kustību attīstību un konfliktu. Darbā autore analizē iemeslus, kādēļ divas ideoloģijas un to kustības, kas postulē nepieciešamību nodrošināt līdztiesību un vienlīdzīgas iespējas sievietēm un vīriešiem, nav spējušas rast kopīgu valodu un to starpā veidojas regulāri konflikti. Autore analizē, vai iemesls šim konfliktam neslēpjas maskulīnisma un tā sociālo kustību antifeministiskajā nostājā. Darba ietvaros šī konflikta praktiskai analīzei autore pielieto deskriptīvo gadījuma analīzes metodi, pētot „Gamer Gate” konfliktu, kura laikā izcēlās visaptverošs disputs, kas radīja ne vien ietekmi uz kultūru, bet arī sabiedrību un politiku, turklāt tajā izgaismojās divas skaidras pozīcijas – feminisma un maskulīnisma kustību atšķirīgie viedokļi. ; „Feminism and masculinism” is a thesis about the development and conflict of masculinism and feminism, and their social movements. In this thesis, the author analyses the reasons why both ideologies and their social movements, that both agree on the neccessity of ensuring equal rights and opportunities for both women and men, are unable to find common grounds and conflicts within the two groups are prevalent. The author analyses, whether or not the conflict is based on antifeministic stance of masculinism and its social movements. To practically analyze this conflict, author uses a method of descriptive case analysis, by investigating the so-called „Gamer Gate” conflict that created a wide dispute, that had implications not only on culture, but on society and politics as well, and that had two distinct viewpoints in it - those of feminist and masculinist social movement.

'Feminism' wrote Marie Shear in 1986, 'is the radical notion that women are people'. But, simple and powerful though this definition is, feminism is not a single, clear narrative. It doesn't begin with a specific event at a particular moment in time, it can't be identified with any one political organization or movement, and it isn't defined by the contributions of a handful of great thinkers. Here, Professor Deborah Cameron unpicks the various strands that constitute one of history's most important intellectual and political movements. In her clear and incisive account, she discusses oppression, sexuality, violence, academic theory and practical activism, shows how feminism can be a way of viewing the world and provides an overview of its history. In an era of #metoo, pay gap scandals and online harrassment, it's impossible to deny that gender inequality is a fact of life. And as long as that continues to be true, we will need to understand and engage with the ideas and history of the feminist movement
