Description

Despite the seemingly gender-neutral categories of individual or citizen, democratic theory and practice continue to be largely male privileges. This book addresses democratic issues from a feminist perspective, exploring the under-relationship of women in politics, the relationship between the private and the public spheres, the lessons to be drawn from the experience of the recent women's movement attempts to make its views heard in democracies.show more
