Summary
  • "Using books, articles, unpublished letters, political manifestos, posters, and other such ephemeral remainders, The Retreat from Organization offers critical assessments of feminism from the 1960s to the present. These materials reveal paths left unexplored and organization efforts still unfinished to suggest new possibilities for present feminist politics. Debates about the second wave women's movement revolve around the identity and the identification of the subject of feminism and rarely ask, as this book does, how feminism operates as a collective movement. Armstrong attempts to complicate how we disagree over feminism by asking questions about identity and organization, the subject and the movement, and ultimately, what "feminism" should be in our present context of passionate indeterminacy."--Jacket
