Feminism is a political movement which aims to end the oppression of women. Feminist philosophy is concerned with theoretical investigations of central concepts and methodologies which are meant to support the pursuit of feminist agendas.
We will address key questions in feminist philosophy such as the following: What is to be a 'woman'? What is gender? How does gender interact with other features, such as race, class, and sexuality? To what extent is the lived experience of one’s own gendered body socially constructed and politically shaped? Do men and women have distinctive ways of acting and knowing? What is gender injustice, and how have feminists fought against it?
