Resumo

ARORA, Cheshta. Dreaming the welfare-state: indian women-studies-movement, neoliberalism and feminist future. Ex aequo [online]. 2020, n.42, pp.57-71. ISSN 0874-5560.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22355/exaequo.2020.42.03.

Through an account of the history of women-studies-movements in India, the paper aims to interrogate the ‘temporality’ of feminist response to the neoliberal reality. By juxtaposing two dominant narratives situated differently, the paper appeals for a re-evaluation of contemporary feminist knowledges that bemoan the loss of ‘welfare state’ and collective political struggles. Through a critical account of women-studies-movements in India, and the inability of their dominant stories to respond to the current conundrums of responding to the ‘neoliberal’ subject, the paper argues that it is not just the neoliberal reality which is hegemonic and all too powerful, but also the feminist stories that constitute it.

Palavras-chave : Neoliberalism; feminist movement; sexual difference; welfare state.
