Example text

Save for its own position, it privileges no discourse over another. Feminists critical of postmodernism know that distinct voices do not make for a single narrative (Haraway, 1989). How do we talk about patriarchy if there is no single reality but rather multiple realities? If we reject the idea of patriarchy as but another metanarrative, do we paralyze feminism? Feminist politics needs a set of positions that it holds to be morally correct and politically important. I believe this puts feminism at loggerheads with the sophisticated debates generated by the Nietzschian critique of modernism and advanced more recently by French intellectual thought, that is, by Lyotard, Derrida, and, to a lesser degree, Foucault.

Taking the Foucauldian notion of the power to define one step further, Fraser (1989) argues that power rests with those who can define the social needs, rights, and interests of persons and societies. By sensitizing us to examine what people say and mean when they speak about certain key social terms, Fraser alerts us to look with care at how laws are written, who has the power to decide what the law's definition of behavior is, who benefits from the law as stated. Through social roles that include gender scripts, individuals participate in the process of legitimation, not necessarily reading the same scripts in different societies or reading the scripts in different ways in the same society.
