Abstract

Most Third World feminists consider nationalism as detrimental to feminism. Against this general trend, I argue that "polycentric" nationalism has potentials for advocating feminist causes in the Third World. "Polycentric" nationalism, whose proper goal is the attainment and maintenance of national self-determination, is still relevant in this neocolonial age of capitalist globalization and may serve feminist purposes of promoting the well-being of the majority of Third World women who suffer disproportionately under this system.
