Subject: [Foucault-L] women and power


I am looking for scholarship on Foucault and women and power.
Specifically women's rights in order to theorize around the political
divide among progressives and conservatives on the topic of a woman's
right to choose (i.e. abortion). I'm interested in how power plays
upon women, how women use and take power, and how women are given or
denied power in western society.

I am familiar with Butler's theories and several French feminists but
would like to find other contemporary scholars working on women and
Foucault who are not necessarily Freudian or Lacanian. Nietzschean's
