The Future Is Female. What Would A Truly Feminist Society Be Like?

Original title: Futures. À quoi ressemblerait une société vraiment féministe ?

Author: Bastide, Lauren

Synopsis

“Identity, sexuality, love and parenthood would be experienced without coercion or injunction. The answer to criminality would be reparation rather than exclusion. Focusing on caring for each other would change our relationship to work. Eco-feminism would lead us into a non-predatory relationship with nature.

Over the centuries, women thinkers focused on gender issues have developed enough tools to profoundly change every facet of society – above and beyond relations between men and women. Applying a feminist program to society means redefining the meaning of love, education, judgment, production and even life itself. In this essay, which intertwines accessible feminist theory with more intimate narrative, I propose solutions to the most urgent issues of our times, in order to build a desirable future. The good news is that that future is now.” L. B.
