Gender and Internalized Oppression: Personal Autonomy, Gender Violence and Justice
Gender internalized oppression constitutes one of the biggest challenges in the field of modern feminist theories of personal autonomy. The discussion which explores the relation between personal autonomy and gender internalized oppression is associated with the branch of liberal feminism which holds that personal autonomy is a key concept and a normative standard both for exploring the problems of gender injustice and proposing solutions towards the end of gender justice. Diana Tietjens Meyers and Marilyn Friedman are the two prominent modern philosophers who defend the above kind of liberal feminism.
This dissertation -which consists of three parts-, attempts an approach to the problem of gender internalized oppression and its relation with gender violence by developing a rawlsian liberal feminism of personal autonomy. In the first part, an -as it is called, here- rawlsian feminist account of gender internalized oppression, as a distinct kind of women’s oppression is developed. In the second part, a number of modern theories of personal autonomy which -implicitly or explicitly- attempt to respond to the problem of gender internalized oppression are examined. Then, a theory of personal autonomy which aims at responding to the problem of gender internalized oppression is developed. This theory-as it is argued- avoids the problems raised by the examined theories on the following levels: the conceptual, the normative and the political. In the third part, -and having already showed, in the first part, what is the relation between systematic gender violence and women’s diminished personal autonomy due to gender internalized oppression- an approach to the problem of gender violence is attempted. This approach is based both on Rawls’s Theory of Justice and what has been developed in the two previous parts, that is, a rawlsian feminist-account of gender internalized oppression, as a distinct kind of oppression which impairs women’s personal autonomy and a theory of personal autonomy which responds to the problem of gender internalized oppression.
