Abstract : « Those who point out feminist complicity in imperialism are often accused of relativism, and postcolonial and decolonial feminists often take universalizing as the target of their criticism. But if universalism is the cause of feminist complicity in imperialism, a global anti-imperialist feminism is impossible. To make space for an anti-imperialist feminist universalism, I argue that moral universalism is not the problem. Instead, a set of non-normative epistemic habits I refer to as idealization, justice monism, and moralism are. »
