The winner of the FWSA 2015 Book Prize competition is Alison Phipps for “The Politics of the Body: Gender in a Neoliberal and Neoconservative Age”: “Her analysis uncovers dubious rhetorics and paradoxical allegiances, and contextualizes these within the powerful coalition of neoliberal and neoconservative frameworks. She explores how ‘feminism’ can be caricatured and vilified at both ends of the political spectrum, arguing that Western feminisms are now faced with complex problems of positioning in a world where gender often comes second to other political priorities.
