Feminism, Law, and Citizenship

Published on 9 July 2019 par Institut du genre

Citizenship may be defined as the status of a citizen with its attendant duties, rights and privileges. It thus governs the relationship of individuals and the state they live in. Questioning the relationship between feminism, law and citizenship unsurprisingly builds on feminist legal theory, whose central claim posits the law as a fundamental tool in the historical subordination of women.

This international conference proposes to explore contemporary issues in the field of feminism, law and citizenship and invites papers related, but not limited, to the following perspectives:
- Democracy and the rise of populism
- Feminist activism
- Gender and sexuality
- Gender equality
- Intersectionality
- Reproductive rights and reproductive justice
- Women’s rights

Paris, Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne
24-26 June 2020
