Abstract

In the Ango-European context ‘unitary’ concepts of gender and approaches to feminism have a long and resilient history. Norms of whiteness and tacit acceptance of racial hierarchies and colonial legacies can be found permeating gender equality policies, feminist political science and activism. This panel aims to apply an anti-racist critique to feminist policies and activism, asking what a reckoning with whiteness entails, and the methodological and ethical implications of applying decolonial approaches and Critical Race Theory in Feminist Political Science.
