Decolonizando a teoria feminista:

contribuições latinas para o debate

  • Linda Martín Alcoff Hunter College e na City University of New York (CUNY)
Palavras-chave: Feminismo decolonial, Feminismo latino, Prática epistêmica democrática, Giro decolonial


Esse artigo faz uma abordagem do feminismo decolonial a partir da teoria e prática das feministas latinas. Partindo da rejeição à abordagem imperial do feminismo, é realizada uma reorientação da teoria feminista em relação ao cotidiano, em busca de uma epistemologia democrática. Para tanto, é tratado o surgimento da questão colonial dentro do feminismo, da relação entre identidades de gênero, libertação de gênero e o giro decolonial, com análises a partir dos trabalhos de Ada María Isasi-Díaz.
