coverThe Invention of Women : Making an African Sense of Western Gender Discourses by Oyeronke Oyewumi.  

The "woman question", this book asserts, is a Western one, and not a proper lens for viewing African society. A work that rethinks gender as a Western construction, The Invention of Women offers a new way of understanding both Yoruban and Western cultures. Oyewumi traces the misapplication of Western, body-oriented concepts of gender through the history of gender discourses in Yoruba studies. Her analysis shows the paradoxical nature of two fundamental assumptions of feminist theory: that gender is socially constructed in old Yoruba society, and that social organization was determined by relative age....

Feminist Bioethics

Toward Developing a "Feminist" Answer to the Surrogate Motherhood Question Rosemarie Tong, writing in Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 6.1 (1996) argues that "bioethicists should work toward developing the kind of shared theoretical base that will foster frequent consensus on the biomedical principles, practices, and policies most likely to serve the interests of most women in the U.S. today." Note: part of Project Muse, Johns Hopkins University Press - may be available only to subscribing institutions.

Feminist Chronicles

The Feminist Chronicles provide a timeline of significant events from 1953 - 1993

"Instead of what the media and many scholars think women have been doing, find out what women have really been doing for the past four decades: read The Feminist Chronicles. Expanding outward from NOW, the largest feminist organization in the world, this provides a breadth, depth, and diversity that should be on every historian's desk, and every bedside table for a nightly dose of, 'I didn't know that!'"

-Gloria Steinem, Noted Feminist and Author

Hypatia:   Journal of Feminist Philosophy

Hypatia (Hy-pay-sha) aims to provide a forum for important new work in feminist philosophy. Since its inception in 1986 as an independent journal, Hypatia has been both a catalyst for broadening and refining feminist philosophy, and an invaluable resource for those of us who teach in this area. Feminist philosophy arises out of the diverse traditions and methods within philosophy, and incorporates interdisciplinary perspectives. We believe that our disciplinary emphasis should be linked to a commitment to publish articles accessible to a broad audience of philosophers and women's studies scholars. This blend of focus and accessibility enables Hypatia to be a resource for the wider women's studies community, for philosophers generally, and for those interested in the philosophical issues raised by feminism.

Hypatia has its roots in the Society for Women in Philosophy (SWIP), many of whose members had envisioned a regular publication devoted to feminist philosophy. Hypatia is the realization of that vision; it is intended to encourage and communicate many different kinds of feminist philosophy.


 Individual Women in Philosophy

The Feminist Theory Website provides research materials and information for students, activists, and scholars interested in women's conditions and struggles around the world. The goals of this website are: 1) to encourage a wide range of research into feminist theory, and 2) to encourage dialogue between women (and men) from different countries around the world. Hopefully, this will result in new connections, new ideas, and new information about feminist theory and women's movements.

The Feminist Theory Website has three parts:

1) fields within feminist theory
2) national / ethnic feminisms
3) individual feminists.

All of these parts are updated and expanded regularly.

This site includes pages on the following philosophers:

Is There a Distinct Feminist Method?

Essay by Anita Connolly.  This paper discusses the various definitions of what constitutes "valid" methodology. Feminist research has frequently been criticized as being "non-sociological," or "non-empirical." This paper concludes that it is not so much the methodology but the epistemological relevance to the topic that matters.
