Neoliberal Shifts, Feminist Responses: Challenges Facing Feminist Service Providers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Historically in Canada, the state recognized that feminist organizations were both advocates for women and service providers. However, under neoliberalism, governments have altered their approaches to these organizations. This paper examines how neoliberalism has created a funding climate which emphasizes service delivery and stigmatizes advocacy. Feminist service organizations experience this climate in complex ways. While aspects of their equality work become more difficult to achieve, their social movement goals cannot be easily severed from their service provision. Thus, I argue that depoliticized understandings of feminist service provision are a product of neoliberalism and should be regarded with suspicion and resisted.
