      Because their difference from other women is inescapable and often cannot be
      disregarded or concealed, the existence of women with disabilities tests
      both the inclusiveness and the power of feminist theory. With respect to
      inclusiveness, disability challenges feminist thinkers to con-sider the
      extent to which their views impose the "normal" woman as a standard. With
      respect to the power of feminist theory, disability invites feminist
      thinkers to explore the extent to which their liberatory ap-proaches apply
      to women who are marginalized for corporeal or cognitive differences, but
      ones that are not primarily gendered or racialized.
      Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy invites submissions for an issue
      of original essays exploring how feminist theory is expanded, inflected
      and/or enriched by responding to the facts of personal experiences and
      public encounters with disability. We will seek to balance contributions
      with implications for methodology and contributions with consequences for
      policy. We are also concerned to obtain contributions from women beyond
      North America, from women with a range of experiences of disability, and
      from women who are just initiating their careers. Among the questions that
      essays in this issue might address are: 1. How might feminist theorizing
      about the body change if it centered, or at least integrated, the
      per-spectives of women with disabilities? 2. What are the implications for
      a feminist ethics of care of the following caregiving situations: Both the
      caregiver and the receiver of care are competent adults? One or both
      persons experience partial, intermittent or deteriorating competence? One
      person's disability is entirely incapacitating? 3. How might feminist
      bioethics develop analyses of prenatal testing and abortion, assisted dying,
      and health care that value and protect the lives of people with
      disabilities? 4. How does our thinking about disability transform when we
      adopt feminist standpoints? 5. Are all feminist values liberating for women
      with disabilities? Are any feminist values marginalizing for women with
      disabilities? 6. Does the development of feminist theorizing about the
      language of sex and gender illuminate the debates about the terminology of
      disability? 7. How do gender and disability interact with race, ethnicity,
      age, sexual identity and religion to construct social identity? to oppress?
      to privilege? 8. Is social policy better able to meet the challenge of
      disability when it is informed by feminist ethical, social and/or political
      theory? All papers should be submitted in quintuplet (5 copies) and
      identified as submissions for the special issue on Women and Disabilities.
      The paper submission deadline is August 1, 2000.
