At the simplest level, a feminist philosophical approach to the body would be one which takes a stand on issues that have historically been of concern to feminists, such as reproduction, sexual objectification, equality in sports, body image, eating disorders, sense of self, and autonomy, for example. The collection of essays that constitutes this journal issue begins with this approach. Authors present debates about these issues, and argue for what they perceive as a feminist perspective. For example, authors argue for women's autonomy, rather than scientific control, over reproduction; for legal definitions of public decency that do not objectify women sexually; for single rather than double standards in athletics, and so on.
