p. 926. Feminism and multiculturalismlocked

  • David Miller


‘Feminism and multiculturalism’ argues that the issues raised by feminists and multiculturalists about the nature of personal identity, the line between public and private life, and respect for cultural difference are very important, but should not displace the older questions about authority, democracy, freedom, and justice. We live in societies that are founded on commitments to freedom and equality, but that have failed so far to live up to these commitments in the case of women and people from minority cultures. We should not see feminism and multiculturalism as displacing longer standing questions of political philosophy, but as posing these questions in new ways.
