Abstract [en]

Many spiritual feminists work with interrupting the idea of a sharp distinction between the spiritual and the material, the religious and the secular, as well as the one between woman and man and female and male. The feminists whose thoughts I previously work with in my ongoing dissertation are not in the first place spiritual feminists, but rather materialist, postcolonial ecofeminists with a holistic (combined spiritual and materialist) worldview. Kaarina Kailo, a Finnish scholar, argues for the importance of making an ideological shift from the Master Imaginary to a Gift Imaginary to promote an ecological and social sustainable society, not based on women and indigenous people as the Other. Kailo looks upon spirituality as an integral and internal part of nature and society and as a basic aspect of human life. Together with more commonly used feminist political strategies, Kailo suggests spirituality, indigenous rituals and myths as important sources for empowering women and non-hegemonic men, and for deconstructing the master narratives and patriarchal structures and practices of western society. After a brief outlining of Kailo's thoughts, I would like to discuss her view of religion, and her feminist theory of a Gift Imaginary, to help me sharpening my analysis.
