Abstract

In this article, Bunting critically assesses Michel Foucault's theses on power/knowledge, law and the state along with feminist writing engaging with Foucault. She explores tensions between Foucauldian and feminist theories while claiming that a constructive fusion of the two can lead to a rich analytical framework for women. Bunting concludes with a discussion of the implications of a Foucauldian approach for feminist legal strategies.
