Feminism in the Postmodernist Age

A. Lanre-Abbas Bolatito

The author identifies feminism as a product of Modernism, which in turn she sees as having its roots in the Enlightenment. She notes that Postmodernism rejects the universalities assumed by Modernism, and concludes that in the Postmodern age feminists will accept the fact that while women around the world share certain common interests, their aspirations will necessarily vary in accordance with ethnic, cultural and regional environments.
