Contribution and Defect: Study of International Relations on the Perspective of Feminism

Qingyin KONG, Daojin SUN


Feminism has contributed to the theoretical development of ontology and epistemology from totally new ideas and views since the end of the 1980 it put the gender’s analysis in the International Relations study. But, feminism has seemed to enter the period of bottleneck of development after more than 20 years. Internal schools are numerous and points are not the same. It has not formed unified theoretical framework. Its range of study is so branded. It regards the gender as analysis tools be applicable everywhere. The development and prospect of feminism depend on revising and remedying the above defects of study.
