Feminist utopias, presented in speculative fiction, are rarely read or considered as political or legal treatises. Science fiction provides feminists with a testing ground just as More’s fictional island in the South Atlantic or Morris’ future society have done before them. This paper advocates reading feminist utopian visions as depicted in science fiction as a starting point for global constitutionalist debates on constituent power. Placing feminist utopias at the centre of our analysis, we consider how constituent power is reimagined and what these reimaginings offer those seeking a feminist global constitutionalisation.
