Talk Title:

Experiencing men’s world


Feminisms are multiple yet all of them have in common to conceive of society as being organized by what is called “gender.” This gendered social organization entails that women and men are educated, incentivized, and asked to behave differently from each other. As a consequence, women’s experiences are deeply shaped by gender hierarchies and in many ways differ from men’s experiences. One of the commitments of the philosophy is to seek to analyze human lived experience yet only a few philosophers have endeavored to study how gender hierarchies shape women’s experiences. This talk will aim to shed light on this phenomenon through a philosophical analysis of submission and (sexual) consent.
