[AUDIO] What is a Woman?
Spencer Giel

01 March 2017

What does it mean for someone to be a woman? While the answer to this question for much of human history may have seemed obvious, modern feminist thought objects to many longstanding ideas about gender. Is gender just socially constructed? Is anyone whom identifies as a woman, really a woman?

Amia Srinivasan references the work of Simone de Beauvoir and Judith Butler as she discusses these questions as guest on the Philosophy Bites' podcast, "What is a Woman?"
