Thank you Kaia. I had hoped only for a definition, but you have given a
much broader picture of what you take feminism to include. I won't "ask all
kinds of impossible questions". My only query would be to ask where human
beings are located in the gendered world of feminism you have portrayed. I
saw "men" mentioned once. But the primary active force in the picture seems
to be "society". But a constructivist perspective would, it seems to me,
have to posit a human being prior to the active construction of her/his own
gender role concept. At least I hope so.
