Feminism against ‘the feminine’

by / RP 105 (Jan/Feb 2001) / Article

Whilst the distinction between French and Anglo-American feminism was always rather dubious (failing to be accurate, consistent or inclusive at the level of either national origin, language of choice or theoretical commitment; seeming to parcel feminist theory – or at least the feminist theory that mattered – out into two Western blocks from which the …

Kristeva’s ‘Women’s Time’ revisited
by / RP 091 (Sep/Oct 1998) / Article

If there is one issue that occupies current debates in the media, and that is shaping British society in the last years of the century, it is the nature of time. This is arguably less to do with millennial fever than with the transformations in working practices which have, for the first time since the …

Politics makes comics of us all. Or we would weep. Sheila Rowbotham 1

I have been thinking for some time now about political generations. 2 Indeed, I began my last book, Straight Sex, with a reflection upon the enduring impact of those formative moments which first enable us to make some sense of the world, …

Philosophy, feminism and universalism

by / RP 076 (Mar/Apr 1996) / Article

During the last ten years or so, when I have been asked what my particular ‘interests’ are, I have usually said that I have been working on ‘feminism and philosophy’, or ‘philosophy and feminism’ – or perhaps, though less often, ‘feminist philosophy’. I have become increasingly interested in how to think about this conjunction: ‘Feminism …
