A New Style of Femininity
This chapter introduces the book’s new conceptual and methodological understanding of postfeminism as performative and transnational cultural, including by way of critique of the broader literature on postfeminism for its predominant Eurocentricism, superficial attention to racial difference, and failure to attend to globalization. It reflects, too, on the intellectual politics and seeming ahistoricism of applying the concept of postfeminism to the global South, where the Western feminist histories upon which the concept is premised do not apply.
