The Frontiers of Feminism

Movements and Influences in Quebéc and Italy, 1960–80

From the mid-1960s through the ’80s, feminist activism spread across the globe, quickly adapting to the specific needs of women wherever they were. Frontiers of Feminism explores the unique concerns of Québécois and Italian feminists, engaging both American and French influences as well as global Marxist and Third World liberation discourse. Revisiting sites of struggle such as the home, the workplace, the academy, and the body, Frontiers of Feminism offers a uniquely international perspective on the major rallying cries and strategies of second-wave feminism.


The 1960s to the 1980s was an effervescent period for sociopolitical movements and offers fertile ground for studying the links forged within these movements. Jacinthe Michaud ventures into uncharted territory by analyzing the Québec and Italian feminist movements during this time and masterfully bringing to light their ideological and contextual influences.
