Abstract

What is feminist theory? This is the first of two issues I will address in myreply. Two of the commentators offer analyses of feminist politics as if itwere feminist theory. A third offers a tour of male high theory. Where isfeminist theory in all of this? The second issue is that of a new convergenceover the issue of difference, in that we all agree that difference cannot beanalysed successfully without reference to overarching frameworks and tooverlaps, together with a rejection of the notion that social locations areincommensurable.
