This paper is concerned to articulate the silences and omissions of mainstream feminist accounting research. Such research overlooks considerations of class, race and culture. It leaves unquestioned the current socio-political and economic order, succumbs in effect to current racial biases and fails to offer a counter to prevalent Western ethnocentrism. It not only tends to conservatism in these respects but also, relatedly, it fails to develop a critique of patriarchal social arrangements.
