Abstract [en]


This literal review intended to assess and shed light upon if west-centric feminism justifies

the neoliberal globalization that reproduces the reproduction of inequality in the world.

The result indicated that sex is not sufficient to categorize a universal group of women and

that other aspects of social structures such as class, caste, ethnicity, race, religion and age

should be included in transnational feminism, and that this discourse needs to be

characterized by contextual understanding of culture and power. Neoliberalism has created

space for personal freedom and choice, but all do not possess the same conditions to utilise

tools to attain positive progress in regard to these choices. Furthermore, this study has

revealed that feminism is subordinate to the globalization of neoliberalism and that the

post-feminist trend could be perceived as being discrepant with a progressive transnational

feminist movement.
