Example text

The centrality of feminist identity turns out to be high among the Taiwanese pathfinders, which suggests that the pathfinders prioritized feminist values as their most meaningful project and that they were more likely to be motivated to act otherwise in their social environments. The centrality of Routledgefalmer studies in higher education 32 identity points to the fact that there are multiple layers of consciousness and competing multiple identities in any person’s life. For the pathfinders featured in this study, it meant that scholarly and feminist interests were possibly often at odds, but that the tensions between them could be constructively used by highly motivated, socially networked feminists.

Perception of Opportunities Although in reality structural contexts are more complex and multi-dimensional, and pathfinders sometimes found it difficult to identify and describe the key structural obstacles and opportunities they faced, I was able to discern from interviews six factors that seem to be generally applicable to the emergence and growth of women’s studies in Taiwan and, perhaps, other parts of the world.

They agree with a human rights ideology that emphasizes realizing women’s potential and improving women’s human resources. They may not see women as an oppressed group disadvantaged by social arrangements and hierarchal gender relations. They identify more with their own Routledgefalmer studies in higher education 34 particular disciplinary training than with women’s studies per se, but they see the latter as an expanding scholarly interest. They are less likely to join the women’s movement and more likely to endorse the idea of separating women’s studies from the women’s movement in Taiwan.
