Women, Utopia, and Narrative: Toward a Postmodern Feminist Citizenship

Hypatia 12 (4):156-177 (1997)
Feminist utopian novels reconstruct citizenship by interrogating ideological assumptions as the root of civil rights theory, particularly its reliance on the sexual contract and the family romance narrative. While many feminist citizenships still depend on such assumptions, utopian fictions deconstruct the logic of natural rights and replace traditional governments and nation-states with social structures based on community and global-ecological awareness. They thereby underscore the importance of narrative for feminist philosophy and political theory
