Nancy Fraser on Gender Roles - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 201f
Gender Roles/Fraser: Representatives of the theory of difference within feminist debate criticise the fact that the demand for equality demands the one-sided adaptation of women to norms and principles that are framed universally, but are actually male.
Nancy Fraser: Proposal: to transfer the modern women's movement into a third phase: this is characterised by the linking of socio-economic redistribution policy with a gender-sensitive policy of recognition of cultural differences and a gender-sensitive representation policy. (1) This proposal is not yet a consensus within the women's movement.
