Aproximación a la noción de mujer-objeto. Consideraciones entre las teorías feministas y la teoría del intercambio simbólico de Jean Baudrillard.
Bernal Mancilla, Johanna
The purpose of this article is to question the woman-object notion parting from the feminist theories and the works of Jean Baudrillard. The aim is to show that in the three modes of production (primitive exchange, capitalism and post-fordism), it is possible to identify several symbolization processes –practices and social relations- that are acted upon by women as agents during the exchanges. This last demonstrates as the economistic definition of woman-merchandise is exceeded by the nuances of woman-symbol and woman-sign. In that sense, it is proclaimed that the dismissed notion of woman-object is reduced neither to the notion of woman-merchandise, or woman-sexual-object, nor the history of domination and oppression in which it normally falls.
