Working Feminism looks at key concepts and debates within feminist theory and puts them to work concretely in relation to the real problems faced by Filipina domestic workers and Asian youth in Canada. Geraldine Pratt draws to the fore the metaphorical and concrete geographies that lie implicit and underdeveloped within much feminist theory and suggests that a geographical imagination offers a means of reframing debates beyond polarized theoretical and political positions. Alternating between theoretical and empirical chapters, substantial and wide-ranging discussions of human rights, multiculturalism, and feminist politics are brought down to earth and by putting them into the context of individual predicaments to life. The empirical chapters situate and describe a decade-long collaboration by an activist group the Philippine Women Centre and demonstrate the fruits of a close and innovative engagement between poststructuralist feminist theory and a participatory action project. Geraldine Pratt is Professor of Geography at the University of British Columbia. Human Geography, 4th edition, and has published extensively in feminist and cultural geography and theory.
