  1. Gender, Agency and Coercion.Sumi Madhok, Anne Phillips & Kalpana Wilson (eds.) - 2013 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    This collection aims to think critically about agency and explore the relationship between agency and coercion in greater depth. In academic, activist, and policy circles alike, feminist work has re-focused attention onto women as agents rather than as passive victims of overwhelming structures of male institutional power, or less capable of exercising agency by virtue of their class, race, gender or culture.
