Feminist Frictions: Key Concepts and Controversies features essays by prominent feminist scholars engaging a key concept or debate in which feminists of good faith have legitimate disagreements. Most assuredly not designed as encyclopedia entries, these pieces instead are potentially controversial “white papers” that offer a nuanced and edgy take on a key issue circulating in the feminist definitional landscape. Each essay is accompanied by an expansive multimedia digital archive that includes podcasts, videos, and cartoons, as well as more traditional books and articles, that speak to the concept in question. Feminist Frictions essays are published in print as well as on the Signs website.
