Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between freedom and power from a feminist perspective. Arguing for a social constructivist approach to freedom that questions the givenness of subjectivity and desire, I argue for a concept of freedom that simultaneously accepts the importance the subject-generated choice and questions how far freedom can rely on such a conception.
