"Provides a critical introduction to the leading positions of leisure theory, and, from a feminist perspective, guides the reader through their strengths and weaknesses. Wearing draws attention to the various leisure experiences women both encounter and construct in their everyday lives, and the meanings these have for them.
She examines the predominantly male theories of the 1970's, and the first wave of feminist reactions to them. Her perspective takes into account such poststructuralist ideas as multiple subjectives of women and multiple femininities; the possibilities of resistance to male dominance in leisure; the potential through leisure of rewriting masculine and feminine scripts; and leisure as a site of struggle to challenge hegemonic masculinity"
