Summary
Reconciles women's rights with multiculturalism - a central problem in contemporary political theory Monica Mookerjee reconfigures feminism in a way that responds to cultural diversity, by drawing on Iris Young's idea of 'gender as seriality'. she argues that a discourse of rights can be formulated and that this task is crucial to negotiating a balance between women's interests and multicultural justice. Works through a set of dilemmas in modern liberal democracies:. The resurgence of the feminist controversy over the Hindu practice of widow-immolation (sati) Gender-discriminatory Muslim divorce laws in the famous Shah Bano controversy in India Forced marriage in South Asian communities in the UK The rights of evangelical Christian parents to exempt their children from secular education The recent controversy about the rights of Muslim girls to wear the hijab in state schools in France
