When feminists argued for political rights in the context of liberal democracy they faced an impossible choice. On the one hand, they insisted that the differences between men and women were irrelevant for citizenship. On the other hand, by acting on behalf of women, they introduced the very idea of difference they sought to eliminate. In this book, the award-winning historian Joan Wallach Scott reads feminist history in terms of this paradox of sexual difference.
