"In this original book, Lois McNay argues that the insights of the recognition theorists are undercut by their reliance on an inadequate account of power. Using Bourdieu's relational sociology, McNay develops an alternative account of individual agency that connects identity to structure. By focusing on issues of gender identity and agency, she opens up new pathways to move beyond the oppositions between material and cultural feminisms."--BOOK JACKET.
