Feminismul ca/si ideologie/ Feminism as/and Ideology

Mihaela Frunza


This paper analyses the relations between feminism and its various ideological cores. Three tendancies are discussed here: acceptance of the ideological core, criticism and rejection of this core and, more intricately, acceptance of one core and rejection of the other. The emphasis is placed on Anglo- American second-wave liberal feminism, whose ideological nature is almost unanomously accepted, in all the meanings of the term – positive, negative, and neutral. The author adopts Christine di Stefano’s idea, that a qualified use of the word „ideology” is preferable to the neglect (that nevertheless must accept the presence) of the term.
