Next time somebody asks you "what's all this feminist stuff, then?", you will be able to send them away to read Rosemarie Tong's Feminist Thought, a remarkably friendly and sophisticated overview of contemporary feminist theory. When they come back mumbling, "It's all very well in theory, but it can't work in Australia", you can deftly reach for Marian Sawer's Sisters in Suits, a detailed and practical account of feminist involvement in the formation and administration of Australian public policy over the last two decades.
