Example text

In feminist terms, we must walk with care as we try first to prevent individuals from oppressing each other and second to prevent government from oppressing individuals. Both are instances that are involved with power, and both deal with questions that impinge on intimate relationships and the role that the state plays in both undermining and/or supporting them (Dalton, 1991). 30 SITUATING FEMINISM A Woman-Centered Standpoint Even when feminist theory is pushed to go beyond liberalism, it has never been able to discard entirely the importance of liberal ideas of freedom and privacy and, to a lesser degree, the attraction of consumerism, materialism, and ownership.

If the emphasis is, however, on multiplicity and diversity and if even moral ideals are to be contextualized, then what set of emancipatory practices can be articulated? How can feminism lay claim to an epistemic advantage if it critiques all authoritative voices, including its own? Seyla Benhabib (1992), philosophically committed to critical theory, points to the limitations of the idea of rationally constituted social action, which is essential for a feminist social movement, if subjects are so situated in language and discourse as to lack the critical distance to think and reflect on the conditions for social change.

Only through understanding women's experiences, it is argued, will we dislodge the suppressed or hidden events in women's lives that offer alternatives to received knowledge; thus this involves politicizing the private. Succinctly put, a sound epistemology stems from (a) a concern that women's voices have not been heard because we either have not looked at women's issues or have privileged certain scientific, objective, and/or masculinist rules of analysis and verification; (b) the need to validate the voices of women to uncover social reality—that is, the need to give epistemic legitimacy to those voices; and (c) the need to start from and appreciate a specific place called women's experiences.
