Explores the political and cultural dimensions of citizenship and their relevance to women and gender. Containing essays, this book examines the conceptual issues and strategies at play in the feminist quest to give women full citizenship status. It also takes a fresh look at issues, going beyond conventional critiques., The notion of citizenship is complex; it can be at once an identity; a set of rights, privileges, and responsibilities; an elevated and exclusionary status, a relationship between individual and state, and more. In recent decades citizenship has attracted interdisciplinary attention, particularly with the transnational growth of Western capitalism. Yet citizenship's relationship to gender has gone relatively unexplored-despite that throughout much of human history, women have been and continue to be denied citizenship, sometimes at even the lowest rank. This highly interdisciplinary volume explores the political and cultural dimensions of citizenship and their relevance to women and gender. Containing essays by a well-known group of scholars, including Iris Marion Young, Alison Jaggar, Martha Nussbaum, and Sandra Bartky, this book examines the conceptual issues and strategies at play in the feminist quest to give women full citizenship status. The contributors take a fresh look at the issues, going beyond conventional critiques, and examine problems in the political and social arrangements, practices, and conditions that diminish women's citizenship in various parts of the world, including both Western and undeveloped nations., "Both a first rate addition to primary research as well as to critical work in the field. The question of citizenship and gender in particular will become more relevant and pressing as the EU expands and questions of gender parity come to the foreground in the aging developed nations of the West. This is an important work."-Eduardo Mendieta, SUNY Stony Brook, Marilyn Friedman is Professor of Philosophy at Washington University and author of Autonomy, Gender, Politics (OUP 2002).
