Shall We Gender: Where? Who? When?

By Ewa Plonowska Ziarek. »»» Drawing on Arendt’s political philosophy, this essay redefines the meaning of gender in terms of action, as a modality of power and relations to others, and in terms of temporality or what Arendt calls the “gap between past and future.” It contests the erasure of Eastern-European feminisms, evident for instance in the First/Third World, Global North/Global South, West/non-West distinctions in transnational feminisms.
