Summary

"This work scrutinizes the prefix-based language of post-backlash feminism and calls for a reclamation of American feminist terminology. The author argues that the proliferation of so-called "prefix feminisms" has weakened the feminist movement by narrowing its focus into shallow interpretations of a broad social and political cause"--Provided by publisher.
