Re: [Foucault-L] women and power


Having only read her book on Foucault I am putting two and two together but you could try looking at the work of Sara Mills

Who (having written said work) also does work on Language and gender (in fact her main focus) so I am assuming it influences her work

Best regards

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
