"In style, form, and content, Thinking Woman is a text that matters. Jennifer Hockenbery Dragseth weaves together history, biography, analysis, and critique to present the impressive range of work by women philosophers on central questions of gender and our common humanity. This work's relevance to contemporary science, health care, religion, and politics is essential, making Dragseth herself a thinking woman to whom we must listen." - Caryn Riswold, Professor of Religion, Gender and Women's Studies, Illinois College "A Lutheran philosopher, Jennifer Dragseth uniquely advances the scholarly examination of gender and sexual difference. In search for truth on the complex question of 'What is a woman', Dragseth invites readers to critically engage major gender theories and to do so specifically in conversation with the thinking women who for centuries have approached the quandary of gender philosophically." - Kirsi Stjerna, Professor of Lutheran History and Theology, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary of California Lutheran University; Docent, University of Helsinki "Dragseth's work is not only a rigorous treatment of what it has meant for philosophers to 'think' about gender; it is also a compelling defense of the ways that diverse philosophical dialogue might continue to inspire our activism." - Maggie Labinski, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Fairfield University "Dragseth provides a well-structured and succinct introduction to feminist theory and gender studies. ... Dragseth is skilled in conveying these theories in clear and accessible terms. This is a concise and fairly wide-ranging text, which provides a useful introduction to gender studies and feminist theory." - Sammy Bishop, The Expository Times, Volume 129, Number 1, October 2017
