Gender within Christian fundamentalism : a philosophical analysis of conceptual oppression

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The article launches a conceptual argument against the suggestion that Christian fundamentalist women, having for religious reasons voluntarily chosen their subjugation,are not oppressed. The article also rebuts the related argument that Christian fundamentalism provides women with adequate means for subversive power. Instead,
the article proposes that women within Christian fundamentalism are oppressed,because within Christian fundamentalism the very identity of ‘woman’ is construedas subjected, thus obliterating the possibility of choosing a non-subjected identity.
