Summary: The Education Feminism Reader is an anthology of the most important and influential essays written in feminist education theory since the late seventies. Attentive to the quality and diversity of this growing field, the Reader showcases the thinking of traditionally liberal feminists, radical postmodern theorists, and those feminists with psychological, philosophical, and political agendas.

Lynda Stone introduces and frames the volume through a discussion
of the historical and historicist location of the project. The 22 essays are empirical and non-empirical studies emerging from philosophy and psychology of education, critical sociology, multicultural theory and literary criticism, and many authors make theoretical connections to their own lives, their own educations, and their own teaching. Special attention has been given to the organization of the anthology, with a view to making it particularly useful as a classroom text in education and women's studies courses.

One of the most important aspects of The Education Feminism Reader is the inclusion of feminists of color, whose voices are intended as a counter-balance and critique of a field that has long been exclusively white. Committed to a pluralist vision of feminism, the anthology attempts to speak for the present in feminist theory, even as it builds from a past and towards a future.
