Description
Law and Morality Lecture February 16, 2011 Catherine MacKinnon- The Liberal State 1. Dillema of Feminist theory She thinks feminist theory has moved between a leftist critique of the state It cant decide between a liberal theory of the state and leftists The liberal holds that the state is a neutral arbitror of conflicting interests- laws are not predisposed to any particular outcome Liberalism treats the state and law as a tool of betterment but in the process of doing this they fail to critique the very legal concepts that have contributed to womens oppression- concepts such as a legal right The leftist critique of the state treats the state and laws as a kind of tool of dominance and repression Feminist theorists on the leftist side tend to assume law is just a kind of screen or set of pretentions of what is really a type of power of asserting your interests on others
