Sharge explores the moral pemises of feminist sexual politics, focusing in particular on the emotive issues of abortion, prostitution and adultery, in order to develop an interpretative and pluralist approach to feminist ethics.
... and I would be delighted to read volume 2, should one be written, that might update and revisit some of the issues examined here. Despite being dated, this collection is extremely important in that it showcases in ways unavailable in other works the early attempts to identify and see connections between different issues relating to women's control over their bodies. Unfortunately in terms of my own major area of interest, the issue of prostitution is the most disappointing -- it seems to have been less thoroughly researched and certainly is less thoroughly presented than the other issues -- but the linkages are fascinating and give an organic continuity to a study of the hot button issues that continue to confront women. It's a terrific beginning, and a good place for men and women who are interested in making these connections to start reading. --- Jeannette Angell, author of "Callgirl"
