A wonderful scholarly work. Chandra Talpade Mohanty focuses on the way Third World women are represented by First World scholars and how, even with the best of intentions, first world scholars tend to generalize and pigeonhole them instead of studying the particular context that shapes social relationships and values attached to people's actions in the society.

I found Mohanty's work in connection with my interest in postcolonial feminism as I found this theory something relevant to my life and the feminist movement in Ukraine. While it is naturally impossible to completely apply Third World feminism to that in Ukraineafter all, Ukraine is not a Third World countrythe discussion of Western feminism and how its representatives, consciously or not, define themselves as the ultimate universal true feminist movement, speaks to me on many levels. Hoping to find more works on the subject.

Absolutely relevant. A must read for anyone interested in this field of study. An important read for a lot of socalled Western feminists! Some notes for the Critical Perspectives on Gender class:

“Beyond sisterhood there is still racism, colonialism and imperialism!” (Mohanty, p. 348).

Postcolonial literature provides the space to reconsider the tendency of the West to see itself superior to other cultures. The type of patronizing attitude toward the ‘developing/third world woman’ has a similar tone to the superior tone noted toward the ‘housewife’ vs. the ‘empowered’ careerwoman whose development is primarily economic (Mohanty, 2003).

Making such wide generalizations and insisting on creating differentiations is tricky, as it hinders the path of transformation and restricts the ‘Other/disempowered’ in an immovable place and as a “homogeneous powerless group” (Mohanty, 2003, p. 338).
