    A Wen-wu Approach to Male Teenage Chinese Sports Fans’ Heteronormative Interpretation of Masculinity.Shuhan Chen, Zhen Troy Chen & Altman Yuzhu Peng - 2023 - Feminist Review 134 (1):69-85.
    This article analyses how performatively heteronormative, male teenage Chinese fans consume sports games through the prism of masculinity, using secondary school students’ engagement with the NBA (National Basketball Association) as a case study. Drawing on focus groups of twenty-three participants, we discover that male teenage sports fans constantly evoke elite NBA athletes as male ideals to define a desirable, heteronormative wen-wu masculinity specific to the post-reform era. In this process, they often engage in a double-standard practice, manifesting as their appropriation (...)

    The Grammar of Belonging: Bodies, Borders and Kin in the Belarusian—Polish Border Crisis.Olga Cielemęcka - 2023 - Feminist Review 134 (1):1-20.
    This article aims to be what Jasbir Puar referred to as ‘an unfolding archive’. It makes a critical intervention at a historical crisis point as it is unfolding. It sets out to examine the logic that writes the relations between bodies, borders and kin during the political crisis that transpired at the border of Belarus and Poland in 2021. I think of this logic in terms of a ‘grammar’, drawing on the idea articulated by Hortense J. Spillers, where ‘American grammar’ (...)

    Exploring the Experiences of Women Social Entrepreneurs: Advancing Understandings of ‘Emotional Capital’ in Women-only Networks.Sarah McDonald, Pamela Burnard & Garth Stahl - 2023 - Feminist Review 134 (1):86-103.
    The field of social entrepreneurship, a domain focused on implementing solutions to social, cultural and environmental issues, remains highly male-dominated. Research continues to emphasise that women social entrepreneurs are often expected to behave in masculine ways in order to become successful. The study presented in this article explored the perceptions and experiences of thirty-three women living in the United Kingdom who were developing their skills in social entrepreneurship. Documenting their experiences, we sought to understand how women work in a male-dominated (...)

    The Saint of Christopher Street: Marsha P. Johnson and the Social Life of a Heroine.Sam Sanchinel & Florence Ashley - 2023 - Feminist Review 134 (1):39-55.
    This article analyses the legacy of Marsha P. Johnson as a heroine through the notion of labour, emphasising how heroine narratives are both a product of labour as well as a form of labour. After offering a short account of Marsha P. Johnson’s role in the Stonewall riots and STAR, we explore the development of trans communities’ ability to create, sustain and disseminate heroine narratives, emphasising Tourmaline’s pivotal archival role in establishing Johnson’s legacy. Then, we elucidate the role of heroine (...)

    Do Czech Women Need ‘Gender’?: A Conceptual History of ‘Gender’ in Czechia.Alexandria Wilson-McDonald - 2023 - Feminist Review 134 (1):21-37.
    In recent years, there has been a growing anti-feminist, conservative movement across many parts of the world known as the anti-gender movement. This movement has been especially strong in Central Eastern Europe, where anti-gender actors have framed ‘gender’ as a static, foreign concept imported from ‘the West’ and destructive to ‘traditional’ societies. Utilising a postcolonial feminist approach, I examine the concept of ‘gender’ in Czechia, drawing attention to the role played by Czech academics, activists and policymakers in negotiating the use (...)

    Elsewheres in Queer Hindutva: A Hijra Case Study.Aniruddha Dutta - 2023 - Feminist Review 133 (1):11-25.
    In July 2021, a series of gruesome videos exposed a case of brutal torture perpetrated by a guru or leader of the trans feminine hijra community in eastern India. This guru was allegedly of a Bangladeshi Muslim background, and various community members used the case as an alibi to target hijras of such national and religious origin, sometimes even demanding their expulsion from India. This phenomenon paralleled increasing affiliations between certain sections of trans/hijra communities and the Hindu Right. This article (...)

    Indeterminacies: Queer Tales of Love and Suffering.Themal Ellawala - 2023 - Feminist Review 133 (1):48-62.
    This is a meditation on love and suffering, pleasure and pain. Despite common sense, public discourse and scholarship narrating these states as diametrically opposed, the lived experience of queer romantic love cannot be disarticulated from the social realities of loss and pain. Suturing love and suffering is the metaphysic of indeterminacy, with the unexpected and uncertain marking romantic encounters and ambitions with precarity and impermanence. Drawing from vignettes gained through an ethnography on queer erotics in Sri Lanka in 2016, I (...)

    Savarna Citations of Desire: Queer Impossibilities of Inter-Caste Love.Akhil Kang - 2023 - Feminist Review 133 (1):63-78.
    Deliberations and discussions on inter-caste relationships in South Asia so far have been fixed within the confines of heterosexuality. Not only are heterosexual inter-caste relationships the default imagination of an inter-caste love, but also notions of heteronormativity dominate discussions of inter-caste love, relationship and, importantly, inter-caste marriages. In asking ‘queer’ questions about caste, this article analyses what an inter-caste dynamic means for social movements which rally around notions of love and desire or choose to reject them. This article recentres desire (...)
