the email i sent out

hey everyone,

it was really awesome to get together and talk with everyone the other night. Our conversation got me thinking about a book that I haven't looked at in a while. It's called Reconstructing Political Theory: Feminist Perspectives. It's a collection of essays edited by two professors from the college I went to, Mary Shanley and Uma Narayan. I'd originally bought the collection because of Uma Narayan's essay, "Towards a Feminist Vision of Citizenship: Rethinking the Implications of Dignity, Political Participation and Nationality", which was the piece that led to me thinking of myself as a feminist and opened my eyes to all of the radical things that entails. I'd like to suggest this as something to read, I don't know if it's the direction folks want to go in, but I really like that it draws from academics who are really concerned with intersectionality, AND there's an article on Feminism and Anarchism included, which I'd really like to re-read.

here's a link to it on googlebooks:
