26 Citizenship: Towards a feminist synthesis Ruth Lister Abstract A synthesis of rights and participatory approaches to citizenship, linked through the notion of human agency, is proposed as the basis for a feminist theory of citizenship. Such a theory has to address citizenship’s exclusionary power in relation to both nation-state ‘outsiders’ and ‘insiders’.
