Conclusion: Anglican Sexual Politics

Show Summary Details


The conclusion discusses the key discursive technologies of sex and gender that emerged in the previous chapters. It highlights the importance of the gendering of political space, the rise of Anglo-Catholic sacramentality, and the dialogic relationship between theology, feminism, and new sexual sciences. It concludes that debates about marriage, suffrage, ordination, and homosexuality in the first half of the twentieth century resulted in a substantial reorganization of Anglican understandings of sex, power, and pleasure.
