Keywords: Intellectual property, Research, Feminism, University research


This paper explores multiple ways in which intellectual property rights may undermine women's/feminists' ability to work in and through the liberal university in order to serve their interests and needs. It also provides a discussion of strategies to resist current trends and to preserve, perhaps enhance, the university's potential to advance the feminist project.
