              Victims, Gender and Jouissance presents an in-depth exploration of the concept of the victim. Victoria Grace considers how feminist authors have appropriated this concept in the history of feminist theorising of gender in the West. She offers critical readings of major theorists ...of victimisation -- from Durkheim, Girard, and Walter to Kristeva, Reineke, Baudrillard and others -- to identify the limitations and weaknesses of this concept, and to establish key questions for cultural and feminist theory. In bringing these theorists together, Grace draws from their disparate visions to give a richer picture of the causes of gendered violence and to discover strategies that will mitigate that violence.

              Examines the phenomenon of rape with a feminist philosophical discourse concerning women's or 'feminine' subjectivity and selfhood. This title demonstrates how the hierarchical dichotomy of male active versus female passive sexuality - which obscures the true nature of rape - is ...embedded in the dominant western symbolic frame.

              Women, Horseracing and Gender: Becoming 'One of the Lads'

              How do the class and gender inequalities found in horseracing affect the working practices of women within the industry? Drawing on the work of Bourdieu and his concepts of field, capital and habitus, this book shows the inequalities that are prevalent within the world of racing,... both historically and currently, by illustrating the classed and gendered nature of racing and how it has developed since the eighteenth century when it was the sport of the aristocracy. Using research obtained through her year-long ethnographic study of a racing yard, Deborah Butler demonstrates that the racing field is an arena of power conflicts, and that men and women who work in racing acquire a contradictorily gendered racing habitus. This is achieved by learning certain elements in a formal setting but mainly informally, by `doing', developing practical skills and participating in a (gendered) community of practice. For female stable staff this means adapting their behaviour and working practices in order to be accepted as `one of the lads'. This book will appeal to both scholars and students of the sociology of sport, the sociology of work and gender studies.

              The lack of recognition of Romani gender politics in the wider Romani movement and the women's movements is accompanied by a scarcity of academic literature on Romani women's mobilization in wider social justice struggles and debates. The Romani Women's Movement highlights the ro...le that Romani women's politics plays in shaping equality related discourses, policies, and movements in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. Presenting the diverse experiences and voices of Romani women activists, this volume reveals how they translate experiences of structural inequalities into political struggles by defining their own spaces of action; participating in formalized or less formal activist practices, and challenging the agendas and mechanisms of the established Romani and women's movements. Moving discourses on and of Romani women from the periphery of scholarly exchanges to the mainstream, the volume invites scholars and activists from different disciplines and movements to critically reflect on their engagements with particular social justice agendas. It will appeal to students, researchers and practitioners interested in fields such as social movements, gender quality, and social and ethnic justice.

              The Embodied Performance of Gender

              The Embodied Performance of Gender (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Norms of embodied behaviour for males and females, as promoted in mainstream Western public arenas of popular culture and the everyday, continue to work, overtly and covertly, as definitive and restrictive barriers to the realm of possibilities of embodied gender expression and a...ppreciation. They serve to disempower and marginalize those not inclined to embody according to such dichotomous models. This book explores the ramifications of the way our gendered, sexed and culturally constructed bodies are situated toward notions of difference and highlights the need to safeguard the social and emotional well-being of those who do not fit comfortably with dominant norms of masculine/feminine behaviour, as deemed appropriate to biological sex. The book interrogates gender inequitable machinations of education and performance arts disciplines by which educators and arts practitioners train, teach, choreograph, and direct those with whom they work, and theorizes ways of broadening personal and social notions of possible, aesthetic, and acceptable embodiment for all persons, regardless of biological sex or sexual orientation. The author's own struggles as a performance artist, educator, and person in the everyday, as well as the findings of empirical fieldwork with educators, performance arts practitioners, and high school students, are employed to illustrate and advocate the need for self reflexive scrutiny of existing and hidden inequities regarding the embodiment of gender within one's own habitual perspectives, taste, and practices.
