Fantasmes du millénaire : le futur du « genre » au XXIe siècle : Traduit de l'anglais par Myriam Boussahba-Bravard

Abstract : Is gender still “a useful category” of analysis? The article suggests it may have lost its critical edge. Not only has gender become a banal way of characterizing the difference between the sexes, it has also sometimes prevented feminists from attending to the serious questions posed by new biological and psychological research. The author does not suggest that we erase gender and the useful notions associated with it from our vocabulary, which constitutes not only an impossible task, but one that denies the flexibility and mobility of language and its crucial role as an agency of change. Rather, the article argues that feminists need to move on, seeking new words and new concepts, or perhaps redeployments and reformulations of existing ideas.
