The Bible and Feminism

Whatever stories we tell about the feminist past will shape our visions for its future. Hence, my explorations attempt to caution us not to situate a feminist remapping of the field of biblical studies within the context of neoliberalism. It is important to note that gender studies arrived on the scene at the same time as neoliberal economic globalization and its academic discourses gained ground around the world. Thus, the history of gender studies is not just a story important for feminism in the West, but rather a story of global dimensions. Today, kyriarchal neoliberal publishing structures not only rob wo/men of our intellectual traditions through misrepresentation, silencing, and exclusion, but much more through the reifying and stealing of our intellectual power. They do so through the control of print and other media. Hence, any remapping of the field must pay attention to this neoliberal capitalist cooptation of feminist work.

Keywords:   feminist theory, heritage, kyriarchy, neoliberalism, publishing, wo/men
