Judith Butler on Feminism - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 743
Feminism/Butler: Problem: when a political movement identifies with the subject identity that poses a problem, a logic of its own develops. "Feminist critique must also understand how the category "wom(en)" is the subject of feminism, created and restricted precisely by those power structures by means of which the goal of emancipation is to be achieved.(1)
, >Equality, >Method, >Power.
Brocker I 745
Feminism would benefit from a more open and diverse understanding of gender. (2)
Brocker I 746
Feminists have criticized that femininity is socially overdetermined, forced into forms that seem to go far beyond biological differences that may be necessary to preserve the species.
ButlerVsFeminism: Butler asks more radically - not how much of "gender" is exuberant and based on the unjustified exercise of power, but whether the feminist movement should not generally work with the identity determination "woman" without a subject?
