Reconstituting the Subject: Feminism, Modernism, and Postmodernism

Hypatia 6 (2):44 - 63 (1991)
Abstract
Political agency is vital to the formulation of a feminist politics so feminists have attempted to create a subject that eschews the sexism of the Cartesian subject while at the same time retaining agency. This paper examines some of the principal feminist attempts to reconstitute the subject along these lines. It assesses the success of these attempts in light of the question of whether the subject is a necessary component of feminist theory and practice.
