Decolonial Feminism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


How are women from the margins part of the feminist project? Historically, women from the margins have been passively alluded to, spoken for, and talked about in ways that obscure their identities, interests, and struggles. In this entry I discuss decolonial feminism as a counter-epistemic epistemology that aims for epistemic autonomy through voicing the feminisms of the Other and the otherwise, and as an emancipatory project that looks to fractures discursive registers used to frame women from the margins and other them within discourses of emancipation. This entry provides an overview of the genealogy and development of decolonial feminism and its application in gender and management scholarship.
