Passage

Read the following comprehension and answer questions 91 to 93:

Feminist theorists have enquired and contested the power and knowledge of various international theorists. Right from idealism, realism, to postmodernism, critical, constructivism and many more they have challenged the mainstream theorists regarding their silence on the female population of the international relations and unattended questions related to gender. In international relations feminism also has different views and methods of approach. In this case there are three kinds of feminism- empirical, analytical and normative. Empirical feminism sees gender as an empirical dimension of international relations. They enquire into the bias of international relations theorists in portraying the international world as a male dominated world. Through their empirical research they try to correct the assumption that international relations have been male driven and that policies and functioning of international relations do not affect the lives of the female population and also that the female population do not take part in the activities of international relations. Some of the empirical feminist researches include research under ‘Gender and Development (GAD) ’ , ‘Women in International Development (WID) ’ . Analytical feminism sees gender in a theoretical category so as to enquire the partiality of different theories of international relations. It digs into the conceptual anomalies and encourages a more comprehensive and accurate study of international relations by taking gender relations seriously under considerations. According to them, the prevalent concepts of international relations have been based on institutions where male hegemony has been established. Normative feminism looks into the process of theorising international relations as a part of normative approach to social and political change in international society. They recognize that there is no particular point from where feminist scholars can start theorising in international relations because every platform is socially and historically constructed. They disagree with the general feminist standpoint that women՚s experiences can offer a critical theory of international relations. Rather, they believe that feminism offers different and varied perspectives from different positions. Their understanding of feminism is non- uniform and non-consensual. It in fact is filled with internal contradictions.
