520    This collection aims to think critically about agency and 
       explore the relationship between agency and coercion in 
       greater depth. In academic, activist, and policy circles 
       alike, feminist work has re-focused attention onto women 
       as agents rather than as passive victims of overwhelming 
       structures of male institutional power, or less capable of
       exercising agency by virtue of their class, race, gender 
       or culture. These broadly positive moves are not without 
       risks. Most notably, they can encourage a triumphalist 
       disregard for constraints through an exclusive emphasis on
       'discovering' agency even in the least favourable 
       situations, thereby obscuring domination, inequality, and 
       subordination. So how does bringing agency and coercion 
       into closer interplay impact our understanding of the two?
       How might the stories of feminist agency change if we 
       locate agency and coercion on the same intellectual frame?
       What would it mean to disrupt the existing constellation 
       of ideas accompanying agency so as to include coercion, 
       subordination and oppression alongside ideas of freedom, 
       autonomy, and independence? How do we theoretically 
       negotiate agency and coercion in conditions of deep 
       inequality? This collection thinks through these questions
       in a range of regional, intellectual, ethical and 
       political contexts
