Abstract
This paper is a study of a European citizenship in relation to two different perspectives on citizenship ? universalism and pluralism - from a gender perspective. We discuss a universal citizenship with equal rights and a pluralistic citizenship with different rights (groupdifferentiated rights), in relation to women within the European Union.

First, we try to decide whether the European citizenship draws towards a universal or pluralistic direction. Secondly, we discuss problems with the universal and the pluralistic citizenship in relation to women in EU. It's not evident which of them best favours women's needs and interests; both are problematic in its own way. The universal citizenship is criticised for treating individuals as equals... (More)
This paper is a study of a European citizenship in relation to two different perspectives on citizenship ? universalism and pluralism - from a gender perspective. We discuss a universal citizenship with equal rights and a pluralistic citizenship with different rights (groupdifferentiated rights), in relation to women within the European Union.

First, we try to decide whether the European citizenship draws towards a universal or pluralistic direction. Secondly, we discuss problems with the universal and the pluralistic citizenship in relation to women in EU. It's not evident which of them best favours women's needs and interests; both are problematic in its own way. The universal citizenship is criticised for treating individuals as equals and thus overlooking individuals? different possibilities to use their civil rights. At the same time the groupdifferentiated citizenship is criticised for treating individuals as different and categorize them in different groups. Despite both perspectives are problematic, in general we criticize a universal and promote a groupdifferentiated citizenship from a feministic perspective.

This papers overall question is: Which are the problems with a universal respective pluralistic (groupdifferentiated citizenship), from a gender perspective? Further: Depending on which problems respective citizenship means to women, should the European citizenship be universal or pluralistic? (Less)
