dc.description.abstractThere is a divide between western feminism and its somewhat idealistic approach to the “rest of the world’s” feminism. Feminism should have its own sections; people are entitled to their own space and their own voices, however different branches of feminism continue to separate and isolate feminists from one another. The views of two leading feminists, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and Chandra Mohanty, are discussed. Although feminism is an effective way to have women’s status in the world evaluated, there are still many conflicting and delegitimizing practices conducted within feminist circles on a daily basis.
