Feminist scepticism about citizenship rights overlaps with that of the radical Left who have highlighted ‘the failure of citizenship rights vested in liberal democratic institutions to meet the needs of women and racialised groups and the socially and economically marginalised’ (Taylor, 1989: 29). In part, this reflects citizenship’s exclusionary tensions, which I will discuss in the next section. At the same time, it also suggests another avenue which is the ‘radical extension’ (Doyal and Gough, 1991) of Marshall’s triad to embrace other categories of rights which have been demanded by social movements, in particular reproductive rights.
