Equalizing privacy and specifying equality
In this brief chapter I simply wish to argue that truly democratic feminist theory must embrace women’s differences and their similarities to others and among themselves. This requires a theoretical and political appreciation for both our privacy rights and the equality of needs (Eisenstein 1994, chap. 4, 6). In other words, we must individualize and particularize our notion of equality while socializing and democratizing our notion of privacy. Although this formulation oversimplifies my intent, it also clarifies my concern to democratize privacy via equality discourses.
