Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 8 (1):31-50 (2005)
|Abstract||A serious problem confronting discourses on recognition is that of showing equal respect for citizens? diverse cultural identities whilst at the same time attending to feminist concerns. This article focuses on the complex issues emerging from the recent legislation prohibiting the Muslim veil in French state schools. I respond to these problems by defending two conditions of a postcolonial and feminist approach to the politics of recognition. This approach should be, first, transformative, in the sense of widening its conception of core values through an engagement with cultural difference. Second, it should be critical in its orientation to practices affecting women adversely within any social group. An integration of these concerns is proposed in terms of ?affective citizenship?. This approach supports the different components of women?s autonomous functioning, through a universalistic commitment to the creative expression of their hybrid identities|
