      What is Feminism For?

      The seemingly uncontroversial idea that feminism is synonymous with “the women’s movement”—i.e., that feminism is “for women”—has in fact never been widely accepted, least of all among feminists. From the beginning, comradely holes have been poked in feminism’s myriad attempts to define itself, not to mention the word “woman.” For centuries, feminists have debated: what does feminism encompass? Who is feminism for?

      In this course, we will consider conflicting conceptions of feminism: that feminism is for working women (and children); that feminism is for “everyone”; that feminism is not for certain people (e.g. men, or trans women); and, finally, that it is for “no one” (i.e., feminism is for abolishing itself).
