Remember- feminist theory is interdisciplinary as a field of inquiry, so develop a search strategy by looking in databases that cover numerous subjects. Databases covering women, gender, and sexuality studies, philosophy, and more broadly the humanities may offer relevant articles, reference sources, and more.
Reference sources like Sage and Oxford encyclopedias are good for finding background information- if you want "just the facts". Look there for short biographies about your theorists or the concepts they defined.
Then, search for scholarly articles in databases like Jstor, Academic Search Complete, Gender Watch, etc. to find articles by the theorists and about their work.
