Feminist Trouble

Intersectional Politics in Post-Secular Times

Éléonore Lépinard

  • This is an open access title available under the terms of a CC BY NC ND 4.0 International license
  • Shows how racialization and islamophobia do not shape similar intersectional dynamics of exclusion in feminist movements and explores the connection between the two
  • Documents how whiteness shapes white feminists as political subjects and their adhesion or resistance to nationalist and exclusionary discourses and projects enounced in the name of women's rights
  • Provides a normative argument to redefine the feminist project and its subject thanks to a feminist ethic of responsibility
