Abstract

Not only must we enlarge the existing international feminist epistemologies on gender law reform, we should also actively seek ways to weave into these patterns the yarns of knowledge, of critical praxis, that both do and can and do not and cannot have names, those producing or foregrounding an episteme and those seeking to break away, or—in Janet Halley’s words—at least take a break from dominant epistemes, including that of feminism. Epistemes are always and at least to an extent violent. For all the inclusionary work they do, they and their resultant taxonomies also exclude, silence and hurt. To alleviate somewhat this violence, there needs to be a space, experimental yet liveable, where naming and categorising does not necessarily take place, or at least not in the stringent languages of Empire and Law.
