Carole Pateman on Privacy - Dictionary of Arguments

Gaus I 280
Privacy/Pateman/Mottier: Whereas feminists agree on the necessity of democratizing the private sphere, they disagree as to the political solutions. Pateman(1), for example, argues for the abandoning of the distinction between public and private spheres in favour of more politicization of the private sphere. Other authors think that it is essential to maintain clear boundaries between the two spheres.
ElshtainVsPateman: Jean Bethke Elshtain (1981(2)), in particular, vehemently rejects Pateman's position. She considers the assimilation of both spheres to be 'totalitarian' since it would not leave any areas of life outside of politics. >Privay/Elshtain.
