Bribery and Intimidation: A Discussion of Sandra Lee Bartky's "Femininity and Domination: Studies in the Phenomenology of Oppression"

Hypatia 8 (1):164 - 172 (1993)
A review of my undergraduate students' commentaries on two of Bartky's essays serves as the occasion for elaborating on Bartky's analyses of factors that sustain and perpetuate the subjection and disempowerment of women. In my elaboration I draw from John Stuart Mill's statement: "In the case of women, each individual of the subject-class is in a chronic state of bribery and intimidation combined." I conclude by raising the question, How is personal transformation possible?
