have taken the operation of the public–private dichotomy to be essential to understanding women’s oppression. 2 Feminist critiques of the public–private distinction The feminist literature on the public–private distinction has focused primarily on critiquing the liberal formulation of the public–private distinction. These critiques fall into three broad strands, of which the first criticises the premises

3 Ewa Plonowska Ziarek Mimesis in black and white: feminist aesthetics, negativity and semblance As Sarah Worth suggests, despite well-established feminist work in literary criticism, film theory and art history, feminist aesthetics ‘is a relatively young discipline, dating from the early 1990s’, and thus still open to contestation and new formulations.1 In this context it might seem paradoxical that one of the founding texts of feminist aesthetics, Rita Felski’s Beyond Feminist Aesthetics: Feminist Literature and Social Change, proclaims its impossibility

There is now a growing body of feminist literature which is problematizing this assumption about a direct co-relation between women’s participation in politics and the representation of women’s interests (see Coole, 1997; Fraser, 1997; Young, 1997; Hoskyns and Rai, 1998). This issue of representation of interests is a vexed one. Whose interests are being represented by the increased participation of women in political institutions? Who can and will

exclusively white, and masculine dominance. Banter with women working in street markets The feminist literature, cited in the last section, about the management of sexual preserves in the Mediterranean, was based on research conducted in the first half of the twentieth century. This research showed women to be largely absent from, or only able to pass through, public spaces on their way back to the private sphere of the home (Harding 1975 ; Reiter 1975 ). Street markets in Napoli of course became increasingly diverse, fluid and contested spaces following the end of

as ethnographic researchers in Turner-King’s context of CYT. They felt that the care they witnessed seemed neither limited nor terribly inward-looking, despite having every reason to be inner-directed in the days immediately following the extraordinarily difficult Brexit referendum vote result and the remarkable sense of uncertainty that followed it. Sociologists Kathleen Lynch, Maureen Lyons and Sara Cantillon, drawing upon extensive feminist literature on care, put forward a view of the ‘care-full’ citizen that recognises the care and love labour, and

For example, the ‘traditional’, ‘postmodern’, ‘cold modern’, and ‘warm modern’ ideals of care elaborated by Hochschild ( 1995 ) can be considered a classic reference in care research. Another strand of research particularly relevant to care for older people is related to the feminist literature on care as

While I focus on sisterhood in this subsection, it should be clear that the account could be used to illuminate other examples, too. 171 It seems uncontroversial today to assert that, given diversity among women, the basis for sisterhood should not be shared experiences of womanhood. This has, by now, become a staple of the feminist literature: the experiences of Black, working-class, Egyptian, Irish
