Until recently, feminist theory and citizenship theory have seemed two distinct areas, with writers in both camps seldom discussing the other's work. Feminism and Citizenship challenges this silence, arguing for the need to collect the debates around citizenship and feminism. The author provides an original reflection upon the key issues in political theory and advocates a unique feminist intervention into the sub-themes of citizenship, including liberty, rights, social equality, political identity, political representation and political judgement.

Rian Voet moves to develop a feminist notion of citizenship by discussing critically citizenship theories and identifying rudimentary feminist theories of citizenship. H

`By insisting on a productive conjuncture between feminism and citizenship, Rian Voet reinvigorates the classical political conception of citizenship as participation in public and social life - a conception of active citizenship that is both sex-equal and woman-friendly. This is a lucid, persuasive and accessible study' - Anna Yeatman, Macquarie University
