Moghaddem states that Feminist Psychology takes an anti-relativist poisition. In other words feminist psychologist's views do not form observations from a perspective of cultural relativism, but rather assert that their view is superior to others regardless of context.
Interestingly while Feminist psychologist strive for change in the advancement of women rights, they reject cultural relativism and employ anti-relativist framework, the same notion shared by oppressors of such rights, who assert that women should have less rights than men and that that is the better way of doing things. Clearly there is a contradiction in the anti-relativist approach of feminist psychologists in that the same premise on which the inequality of women exist is the same notion being employed for the equalization of such (M, p.263)
It it is not appropriate for psychologists to take an anti-relativist approach, seeing as the root of what has given birth to feminist psychology is fundamentally established from an anti-relativist position, How then can one counter these arguments in using the same notion ?
Given the diverse and culturally rich society of Canada , the study of Feminist Psychology should reflect such, taking into account cultural relativism accordingly. To truly find equality as feminist one cannot deny giving equal voice to all cultures as they are certainly relevant and interconnected, especially in managing diversity.
