Today’s key word is: equality. As Dominique Clément writes, “Equality is talked about a lot, but not implemented in action” (1975). This audio essay, produced by six undergrads, explores the hopes, limitations and contradictions of “equality” as a political ideal for feminist and critical thought. This collaborative essay was created in the context of a Feminist Philosophy course in fall 2016.
