Women's Rights as Multicultural Claims: Reconfiguring Gender and Diversity in Political Philosophy

Synopsis

How can one negotiate and integrate the claims of feminism and multiculturalism through a discourse of rights? The apparent opposition between feminist and multicultural justice is a central problem in contemporary political theory. It also excites a deep suspicion about invoking a political discourse that has been accused of being either eurocentric, androcentric, or both. In this book Monica Mookherjee develops Iris Young's idea of "gender as seriality" in order to reconfigure feminism in such a way that it responds to cultural diversity. A discourse of rights can be formulated, she argues, and this task is crucial to balancing women's interests and multicultural claims.
