GAONA, Melina. Revisiting questions from a feminist theory faced with an overwhelming context about minorities. La ventana [online]. 2019, vol.6, n.50, pp.80-105. ISSN 1405-9436.

This article presents different ways in which feminist theory problematizes and explains different modalities of exclusion and violence directed to subaltern groups. It is based on the premise that virtually all subalternized minorities are crossed by gender. This leads to analyzing the modalities of concentration and exercise of power, as well as the staggering of inequalities and oppressions in both individual and collective experience. Initially, a brief description is presented about the way the exercise of power is structured over difference. After it, we open three debates around feminist intervention: we introduce the way in which feminism is necessarily proposed as a transformative radical axiom; we take up part of the feminist inquires and methods when contesting common senses against in the social plane; and we propose the contribution of feminist practice as solidarity and as a critical way to transveralize coalitions of difference. We conclude reconstructing the possible operations on which collective narratives are generated among underrepresented groups.

Palabras llave : feminist theory; minorities; coalitions; difference; common sense.
