TAJAFUERCE, Begonya Saez. Feminism and/in the/its plural. Ex aequo [online]. 2020, n.42, pp.73-85. ISSN 0874-5560.

In recent times, Feminism has been declared a mass phenomenon, as if it thereby was attributed a plural character. Yet, what kind of plurality is at stake for the Mass as a subject? According to the philosophical notion of das Man, the Mass serves indifference, and it there­fore stands as the paradigmatic subject of neoliberalism, fascism, and right-wing populism. The logic of the Mass is the logic of the One. Yet difference makes operative another logic, namely the logic of Plurality, a relational logic that allows for the new, the unexpected, and the improbable. Given its radically material and non-discursive complex character, the Body actualizes this true transformation by enacting sexual difference. By taking the Body into account, that is, by taking difference specifically into account, both in ontological as well as in epistemological and in ethico-political terms, Feminism might become an anti­dote to the totalitarian logic of the One.

Palavras-chave : Feminism; neoliberalism; plurality; sexual difference; relationality.
