Notes:
How secularism has been used to justify the subordination of women Joan Wallach Scott's acclaimed and controversial writings have been foundational for the field of gender history. With 'Sex and Secularism', Scott challenges one of the central claims of the 'clash of civilizations' polemic-the false notion that secularism is a guarantee of gender equality. Drawing on a wealth of scholarship by second-wave feminists and historians of religion, race, and colonialism, Scott shows that the gender equality invoked today as a fundamental and enduring principle was not originally associated with the term 'secularism' when it first entered the lexicon in the nineteenth century.
