(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #225 - Read: Nicole Van Enis: Feminisms plural (fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 10 Apr 2013 10:42:23 +0300


Nicole Van Enis is a feminist activist and long one of the leaders of the association self-managed library of Liège, Barricade. It proposes, in less than a hundred pages, exploring the history movement and feminist theories. ---- The first chapter recalls some fundamentals. The author first sets out two definitions of feminism as awareness of personal and collective. It affects both men and women. Furthermore, feminism is not a sectoral fight, but cross. Finally, the author reaffirms the policy of the feminist movement: it gives a target of radical social transformation. Note that it also makes a point about the notion of "gender" is widely used today. ---- In the second part of the book, the author returns to the classification by waves is used (although also discussed) by some feminist theorists to organize the movement's history.

It begins by recalling the beginnings of the movement in particular at the time of the French Revolution. But the first wave unfolds really until the late nineteenth century and during the first part of the twentieth century to demand equal civil and political rights between men and women. The second wave took off from the late 1960s. The author presents it as marked by a claim of sexual and personal liberation. The third wave, which emerges from the 1980s, is described by the author of the transnational global network. The chapter is also decorated with a timeline, as well as a short history of feminist publications in France and Belgium.

The third part focuses on exposure of the main theoretical currents of feminism: liberal feminism, egalitarian, Marxist feminism, radical feminism materialistic differentialist radical feminism, post feminism (or postféminisme postmodern queer theory), eco-feminism. It also makes a lot aware antifeminist said "masculinist". The chapter concludes with a table that contains a synthesis of the different currents evoked. The book concludes with a short summary and a bibliography. Finally, a short introduction very educational to learn to feminism.
