PI CHOLULA, Alonso. The Structuring Power of Gender, Love and Sexuality: An Analysis of the Symbolic Space of “Feministlán”. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2021, vol.7, e693.  Epub Mar 24, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

This article analyzes the relationship between two elements: a) ways of carrying out a gender performance of love and sexuality, and b) the organizing of a symbolic space (Feministlán) inhabited by different feminist activists. Applying a biographical method with 21 feminist women in Mexico City, it was revealed that love and sexuality are matters of public interest in Feministlán, since they constitute realms of experience in which is possible to demonstrate the political significance attributed to gender identity. Furthermore, it was concluded that Feministlán can be conceptualized as a “field”, a gender order, and an emotional regime.

Keywords : emotional work; gender performance; feminist women; love; sexuality.
