Alicerçada no pressuposto da inter-relação entre os campos da comunicação e do feminismo, esta proposta pretende fornecer subsídios ao movimento de mulheres e feminista, comprovando que as Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação (TIC) -- que têm na internet a sua maior expressão -- não são um fim, mas um instrumento para a transformação social. Com a revolução das TIC, o avanço do trabalho pela equidade das relações sociais de gênero depara-se com o desafio da mudança de mentalidade. Concomitantemente com a revolução tecnológica, ocorrem as revoluções do aprendizado e da expressão pessoal e interpessoal, acarretando outras formas de representação da mulher em função das novas dinâmicas comunicacionais. É pela comunicação a distância que se vislumbra um caminho de reformulação da agenda feminista, com novas estratégias de intervenção política e de atuação. O recorte da pesquisa foca a implementação do uso da internet -- mais especificamente das redes sociais -- para o avanço da luta contra a violência às mulheres, no âmbito doméstico. Considera-se esta cruel realidade como a mais grave expressão das desigualdades de gênero, as quais foram construídas há milênios, colocando a mulher em condição de subordinação ao homem...

This article explores a theoretical legacy that underpins the ways in which many social scientists come to know and understand obesity. In attempting to distance itself from essentialist discourses, it is not surprising that this literature focuses on the discursive construction of fat bodies rather than the materiality or agency of bodily matter. Ironically, in developing arguments that only critique representations of obesity or fat bodies, social science scholars have maintained and reproduced a central dichotomy of Cartesian thinking – that between social construction and biology. In this article I examine the limitations of social constructionist arguments in obesity/critical fat studies and the implications for ignoring materiality. Through bringing together the theoretical insights of material feminism and obesity science’s attention to maternal nutrition and the fetal origins hypothesis, this article moves beyond the current philosophical impasse, and repositions biological and social constructionist approaches to obesity not as mutually exclusive, but as one of constant interplay and connectedness.; Megan Warin

La prolífica obra audiovisual de Cecilia Barriga (desde la video creación al documental y la ficción audiovisual) muestra de forma preclara las relaciones entre los productos audiovisuales y los estudios de género al ofrecer una perspectiva propia sobre la identidad de género, la mujer y el pensamiento feminista. Se repasará, en dicha perspectiva de análisis, su obra audiovisual y se analizará específicamente su pieza documental El camino de Moisés (2004) como ejemplo específico de su reflexión (y de su trabajo) en torno al género, la identidad y los roles que la sociedad establece y que tienden a encasillar a las personas en torno a la construcción de identidades inmóviles de género basadas en la genitalidad.; ABSTRACT: Cecilia Barriga’s extensive audiovisual oeuvre (from videoart to audiovisual documentary and fiction) shows the relations between Audiovisual Culture and Gender Studies and offers a personal perspective on gender identity, women, and feminist thought. From the perspective afforded by gender studies and feminism, this essay will review some crucial titles in her career but will pay particular attention to her recent documentary The Path of Moses (2004), an example of her work on gender, identity, and on the social strictures that underpin identity construction...

non-peer-reviewed; From the early 1980s feminist theory has made steady inroads into IR theory. The standard view, both amongst IR feminists and other scholars in IR, is that prior to this there was little or no feminist theory in IR. Yet, there was a distinct feminist IR prior to the 1940s that had its own particular take on the problems of global order. This paper seeks to reassess the ideas and impact of IR’s first-wave feminism by concentrating on the works of one particular writer, H. M. Swanwick. Certainly, Swanwick was not the only feminist writing on international affairs in the period. She is interesting, however, both because of her earlier involvement in the feminist and suffragette movements, and because she constructed a clear analysis of the problems of security in IR. Her criticisms of collective security put her at odds with many of her left-wing colleagues, who supported military sanctions by the League. While she gave very sound reasons for rejecting so-called ‘League wars’ against aggressor states, her position in the late 1930s brought her closer to the appeasement policy of the Chamberlain government. Yet, despite this, her criticisms of both collective security and the old pre-1914 international anarchy are an interesting corrective to both the realist paradigm that emerged after the 1940s and the liberal-socialist paradigm that supported a tighter League system in the 1920s and early 1930s. It is also an indication of the extent to which a liberal feminist agenda had been part of mainstream IR prior to the realist ascendancy.

In this paper, I will engage with some of the recent literature that attempts to define, map out, analyze, categorize, and critique a growing body of academic scholarship that has emerged in the late 80s and early 90s and which has been termed as Islamic feminism. I will examine three contestations around Islamic feminism. The first is related to its conceptualization and categorization. The second contestation concerns the relation of Islamic feminism as an epistemic project to classical Islamic knowledge such as exegesis and jurisprudence. And the third revolves around the relation of Islamic feminism to other kinds of feminism and the limits of the former in delivering equality to Muslim women Notwithstanding the above-mentioned contestations, I argue that there are two main and systematic interpretive projects within Islamic feminism. The first project focuses on the exegesis of the Qur’an such as the work of Amina Wadud and Asma Barlas. The second engages with Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh). It is best exemplified by the work of scholars such as Mir-Hosseini, and Kecia Ali. It is my contention that it is the combination of these two projects, both in their methodologies, theoretical frameworks, and their knowledge outputs that can establish sound foundations for Islamic feminism and pave the way for its further development.

This thesis examines the politics of deconstruction within the interdisciplinary field of Women’s Studies and the question as to whether deconstruction has a politics, or can enhance the political goals of western feminism. This thesis argues that philosophy, and deconstruction in particular, is extremely useful for re-thinking feminist issues, especially around subjectivity and agency, but is not always seen to be so by some Australian feminists. As a result, Australian feminism, like feminism in other Anglophone countries, founded on the dichotomy of sameness-difference, has run out of theoretical and political steam. This thesis explores deconstruction within feminist debates and practices from the mid-1980s to present. In exploring both the contribution of deconstruction to rethinking difference and agency, and the failure on the part of most Australian women’s studies programs to apply the full potential of deconstruction, an argument is put forward for the value of deconstruction as a way of rethinking the question of woman’s subordination. While this is not a new area of study, this thesis focuses on the political efficacy of deconstruction, which is not always directly addressed in feminist texts. The first three chapters focus on the ways deconstruction has been interpreted...

Unruly spaces: gender, women's writing and Indigenous feminism in China

Since the 1995 Beijing Women's Conference contemporary women's writing in China has been a privileged site for the exploration of gender relations and female specificity. After defining a specifically indigenous Chinese feminism, this paper studies four directions in women's writing that impact upon feminist practice: rural women's stories that encourage advocacy for women's rights; new historical fiction that challenges the established representations of women in history; popular novels and blog sites by urban women that sexually subvert traditions; and poststructuralist 'personalised writing' that disengages from male-centred discourse and explores women's radical alterity. We argue that these writings give rise to many sites of activism, not only for Chinese women in urban and rural areas, but also for Chinese women's involvement in trans-global feminist networks and cross-cultural exchanges. Chinese feminists today, through the medium of creative writing, articulate a new politics of difference, refracted through English-speaking and European theories, but adapted to local traditions, histories and regional affiliations, directed toward an indigenous, Chinese-style of feminism with expansive possibilities and an array of indeterminate outcomes.; Kay Schaffer and Song Xianlin

Pat O'Shane is a sometimes controversial public figure who has maintained a media profile alongside her public service roles as head of the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and as a magistrate in New South Wales. Born in Northern Queensland to an Aboriginal mother and Irish father, O'Shane describes an early life of family poverty and discrimination in school. She recalls being subject to both racist and sexist taunts. Despite a period of mental illness and an early divorce, O'Shane has, by any standards, been a high achiever (O'Shane 1984b; Mitchell 1984, 2001). Expressing a strong commitment to promoting social justice for marginalised groups, she has made contributions to Aboriginal and feminist politics in deed and in the public debate. Yet her views do not always accord with the views of the political communities (or publics) she supports. Her public observations about sexism within the Aboriginal community and about racism within the Women's Movement (O'Shane 1976) have made O'Shane's public voice unique. The intent of this analysis is not to provide a profile of a public individual as much as to gain some insight into how feminism has been represented in the context of media reports about Pat O’Shane. This paper characterises O’Shane as an example of a synthetic identity – a public figure marked by identity difference but able to achieve media publicity for political causes within the norms and conventions of news reporting. O'Shane's public identity has been forged by a public status as "first Aboriginal woman to…" and by a narrative of individual struggle and achievement which she and the media have cultivated and sustained. An analysis of reports in the mainstream press (including the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH)...

This thesis examines the possibilities for feminism that arise from the work of Michel Foucault, which I explicate by comparison it with humanist existentialism. I begin with The Second Sex, Simone de Beauvoir's application of existentialism to women. I expose the problems that arise in Beauvoir's project. Woman's body is an obstacle to her transcendence, and further, she must abandon her feminine desires and values, and accommodate herself to masculine patterns if she is to overcome her immanence and subordination. To understand why such problems recur in The Second Sex, I turn to Sartre's Being and Nothingness. After examining the conceptions underlying his thought, I conclude that his philosophy is unable to encompass difference, and is therefore antithetical to the feminist project. ¶ Foucault's philosophy offers solutions to these problems by eliminating consciousness as universal subject of action, and by making subjectivity a product of time, through showing how subjects are formed though the changing effects of power upon bodies. His thought encompasses difference at a fundamental level, through understanding human beings as particular 'events' in time. I argue that Foucault's philosophy does not depend fundamentally, as does Sartre's...

Knowing victims : feminism, ressentiment and the category 'victim'

Throughout the 1990s feminism was criticised for being centred on a representation of women as 'victims', a representation which purportedly is substantially untrue, inimical to female agency, and politically regressive. This criticism has gained increasingly broad purchase both outside and within feminist circles, and has become something of a mass media truism. The main task of this dissertation is to examine salient articulations of this criticism, firstly within the sphere of popular feminism, and secondly within the sphere of feminist political theory. The concern motivating the dissertation is that this criticism, while illuminating in some important respects, predominantly has operated as a vehicle through which attempts are made to curtail feminism's potential to foster radical social change. The first part of the dissertation addresses popular feminist critiques of 'victim feminism'. The popular accounts are found to construe the 'victim problem in feminism' as a venue for reasserting traditional liberal feminist edicts and for cultivating a neoliberal feminism. With a view to elucidate the generic turns of 'victim talk' in liberal democratic settings, and with particular attention to the issue of sexual violence, my analysis reveals (inter alia) that the association these accounts set up between 'the victim problem' and radical feminist politics relies on an elision of the latter's guiding construction of 'victims' as agentic subjects. The second part of the dissertation exammes accounts by feminist political theorists in which the question of feminism's relationship with hecategory 'victim' is taken up under the aegis of Nietzsche's concept of ressentiment. These accounts argue that feminism has become a politics of ressentiment-a resubordinative disposition which reifies women's victim status and encourages apolitical moralism-and ought to construe its political horizon as a move beyond ressentiment. However...

This thesis, based on the results of an organizational ethnography of a university-based feminist organization in Southern Ontario (the Centre), traces how third wave feminism is being constituted in the goals, initiatives, mandate, organizational structure, and overall culture of university-based feminist organizations. I argue that, from its inception, the meanings and goals of the Centre have been contested through internal critique, reflection, and discussion inspired by significant shifts in feminist theory that challenge the fundamental principles of second wave feminism. I identify a major shift in the development and direction of the Centre that occurs in two distinct phases. The first phase of the shift occurs with the emergence of an antioppression framework, which broadens the Centre's mandate beyond gender and sexism to consider multiple axes of identity and oppression that affect women's lives. The second phase of this shift is characterized by a focus on (trans) inclusion and accessibility and has involved changing the Centre's name so that it is no longer identified as a women's centre in order to reflect more accurately its focus on mUltiple axes of identity and oppression. Along with identifying two phases of a major shift in the direction of the Centre...

Media play an important role in transmitting information for citizens in a country as large as Canada. Much of what Canadians know about the larger country comes to them through the media they view. What then, is the information that media carries forward. How do the media depict political movements and political actors who are not politicians? This thesis explores the implications of media coverage for feminist organizations in Canada, using as a case study media’s response to the cuts to the Status of Women Canada by the Harper government in the fall of 2006. This analysis specifically focuses on the image of feminism created in media and the importance (or lack thereof) communicated by media about such organizations.; Thesis (Master, Political Studies) -- Queen's University, 2007-10-23 20:03:09.21

Cette thèse explore les connections entre la littérature canadienne contemporaine féminine et le féminisme transnational. Le « transnational » est une catégorie qui est de plus en plus importante dans la critique littéraire canadienne, mais elle n’est pas souvent evoquée en lien avec le féminisme. À travers cette thèse, je développe une méthodologie de lecture féministe basée sur le féminisme transnational. Cette méthodologie est appliquée à la littérature canadienne féminine; parallèlement, cette littérature participe à la définition et à l’élaboration des concepts féministes transnationaux tels que la complicité, la collaboration, le silence, et la différence. De plus, ma méthodologie participe à la recontextualisation de certains textes et moments dans l’histoire de la littérature canadienne, ce qui permet la conceptualisation d’une généalogie de l’expression féministe anti-essentialiste dans la littérature canadienne. J’étudie donc des textes de Daphne Marlatt, Dionne Brand, et Suzette Mayr, ainsi que le périodique Tessera et les actes du colloque intitulé Telling It, une conférence qui a eu lieu en 1988. Ces textes parlent de la critique du colonialisme et du nationalisme...

A segunda onda do Movimento Feminista no Brasil emergiu em um contexto de combate à Ditadura. E surgiu em São Paulo como possibilidade de reforçar mais uma frente de luta contra o governo militar. Mas o feminismo ainda era uma novidade pouco conhecida até por aquelas que se declaravam como feministas. Era rechaçado pelos segmentos mais conservadores da sociedade, mas também pelos militantes da Esquerda revolucionária. Estes o consideravam fora de tempo e lugar. Ao impulsionar o movimento social, o feminismo no Brasil reapareceu em meados da década de 70 enfrentando a questão do poder externamente, na sociedade e no Estado, e internamente, no próprio Movimento de Mulheres. Os vários grupos que compunham o campo em que se afirmava o feminismo disputavam o controle do Movimento de acordo com os referenciais tradicionais de poder. E, ao mesmo tempo, buscavam alternativas de gestão do movimento que fugissem daqueles modelos. Ora porque assim as circunstâncias impunham, ora porque assumiam as críticas elaboradas pelo feminismo à natureza patriarcal e autoritária do poder tradicional. As contradições que o Movimento de Mulheres abrigou punham em jogo as posições de todas as suas ativistas, inclusive das próprias feministas. Fazia com que reexaminassem os seus papéis sociais e constatassem as suas condições de oprimidas. Construir as identidades feministas significava romper com os cânones estabelecidos para o ser mulher que haviam aprendido. Assim como implicava assumir-se como sujeito de suas lutas.; The second wave of the Feminist Movement in Brazil emerged in the context of fighting the Dictatorship. And it arose in São Paulo as a possibility to further enhance a battle front against the military government.

The article explores the adoption and search for appropriate alternative terms to “feminism” by African feminist critics. It also highlights the characteristics of some of these feminist ideologies and the reasons for their formulation. This work is informed by Afro and Eurocentric ideologies defended by these critics which, delineate and justify some distinctiveness of these African feminist positions.; Este ensaio tem o objetivo de explorar a adoção e a procura de um termo alternativo equivalente a “feminismo” pelos críticos das literaturas africanas. O ensaio também sublinha as caraterísticas de algumas das ideologias feministas africanas, bem como o conteúdo e os contextos subjacentes ao aparecimento destas designa- ções. Esta abordagem é apoiada pelas ideologias afro e eurocêntricas defendidas pelos referidos críticos, que nos ajudarão a equacionar melhor algumas das características que enformam as posições feministas em África.

Value change and the feminist movement represent two major shifts in mass political orientations and behavior in the late twentieth century. Yet we know little about how these two fundamental changes relate to one another. This article addresses this question by analyzing the relationship between postmaterialist values and feminism among 13 advanced industrial democracies, using the 1990-91 World Values Survey. The results suggest that both gender and postmaterialist values are associated with feminism: women and those who adopt a postmaterialist stance are notably more likely to endorse feminist beliefs compared to men or materialists. Religion also plays a major role, both in terms of individual religious self-identity, and in terms of the religious culture of the country in question. The relations among gender, postmaterialism, and feminism are complex and deserve more careful analysis.

The studies and feminist discourses of the academic field of public health have contributed and are contributing to the preparation, planning, implementation, execution and evaluation of public policies for women, especially in the field of women’s health, in a context of sexual and reproductive citizenship. Therefore, adding new people to feminist thinking is strategic in promoting women’s health and encourage the recognition of Sexual and Reproductive Rights. This research aimed at identifying ways of approaching feminism and with the theme of sexual and reproductive health with a feminist perspective by academic feminists in the area of public health. To this end, interviews were conducted and the results were analyzed using content analysis based on Bardin. Among the results, include: The university area was the excellence place of the approximations of the respondents with feminist thought, the main avenue of approach to feminism was through personal contacts with feminists, the elaboration and implementation of PAISM turned out constitute a strategy for dissemination of feminist thought throughout the country, the interest of the interviewees on the subject of sexuality, reproduction and overall health of the woman acted as a catalyst for rapprochement with feminist ideas...

http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-026X2012000100008Este artigo tem o propósito de investigar as interfaces entre gênero, cor/raça e saúde pública no Brasil, tendo como foco a importância da saúde reprodutiva para a constituição de um feminismo negro no país, entre os anos de 1975 a 1993. O feminismo negro se formou a partir das relações entre as militantes negras e os movimentos feminista e negro. O tema da saúde reprodutiva, com recorte racial, adquiriu importância na década de 1980, a partir de denúncias de esterilizações cirúrgicas entre mulheres negras. O artigo investiga o contexto em que emergiram tais denúncias e a relevância dessas para a formação de uma identidade entre as ativistas negras.; This article aims to investigate the interface between gender, color/race and public health in Brazil, focusing on the importance of reproductive health for the formation of a black feminism in the country, between the years 1975 to 1993. The black feminism was shaped from the relations between black activists and feminist and black rights movements. The topic of reproductive health, under a racial perspective, gained importance in the 1980’s from reports of surgical sterilization among black women. The article investigates the context in which such allegations have emerged and their relevance to the formation of an identity among black activists.

In this paper I briefly describe some examples of observations I made, while involved in a health care research project, of situations faced by women. The purpose of the exercise was to emphasize the need for an interaction(dialogue)between knowledge, health care practice and feminism. I also discuss some aspects of the interaction(dialogue) between epistemology and feminism in the light of the work of Bachelard as opposed to the views of Dorothy Smith, Alison Jaggar, Susan Bordo, Gayle Rubin and Teresita de Barbieri. Lastly, I attempt a synthesis of what I consider to be the major epistemological ruptures promoted by feminism concerning mainly language and work.
