Carole Pateman on Feminism - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 503
Feminism/Pateman: Pateman's later work - especially The Sexual Contract (1988) (1) - serves to explicate this emancipatory intention (Puwar/Pateman 2002) (2), why (...) Pateman's usual characterization as a feminist theorist is shortening and does not do justice thematically to the intention of her work. The long-term goal of her scientific work is the explication of a democratic-participative social theory in emancipatory intention ("participatory society").
