Abstract

In this chapter, we address the current state of feminisms within international law, examining gender law reform and which feminist approaches have been given less attention within international law. We examine contemporary accounts from the work of scholars within international law whose methodologies are attuned to history, alongside gender theories that develop feminist historiographies and engagements with archives to explore the intersectional and postcolonial dimensions via a turn to historiography within feminist approaches to international law. We argue for a plural feminisms: plural in the sense of being diverse and multiple, as well as dynamic and evolving across transnational contexts but also plural in the sense of attentiveness to legal pluralism and plural subjectivities in a manner that is an important pre-step to constructing legal knowledge differently.
