This chapter discusses the theoretical insights of this study on women's rights as multicultural claims. It explains that attention to the particularity of women's interests and vulnerabilities provides a critical corrective to the tendency of liberal feminists to respond to the issues confronting women of different cultural contexts simply by redoubling efforts to apply uniform or similar laws. It contends that the cultural particularity of women's experiences relate in meaningful ways to structures of gender subordination that exist across cultures.

Keywords:   women's rights, multicultural claims, women's interests, liberal feminists, cultural particularity, gender subordination
