(p.3) Introduction
On Female Body Experience

Iris Marion Young (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The introduction presents an overview of the essays included in this volume, which are presented as a set of overlapping inquiries about social meanings of female embodiment. The distinction between “female” and “feminine” experience is explained and the tradition of existential phenomenlogy is described. The essays are shown to take a feminist perspective, both as expressing sex and gender-specific female subjectivity, and as claiming that women are not as free as they ought to be.

Keywords:   embodiment, female, feminine, existential phenomenology, feminism, freedom, sex, gender
