  • (Il)legal Subjects' Contested Identities of Canadian Indoor Sex
           Workers

    • Authors: Menaka Raguparan
      Abstract: Women’s participation in the sex trade industry has always been a subject of contention, with conflicting representations. In this paper, I present the finding of in-depth, face-to-face interviews with ten independent in-call and/or out-call sex workers in Canada. Through these interviews, I seek to understand the distinctive names and meanings attributed to the identities of sex workers. Driving on divergent analytical concepts such as legal consciousness, respectability, self-creation and the intersection between gender, race, class and sexuality I chart participants’ perceptions and interpretations of the classifications inscribed to them by legal, political, and the civil society. Moving beyond existing languages and discourses that are particularly used to define, name and characterize women’s involvement in the sex industry, in this paper I highlight the fluidity and complexities of personal, social and political identities of the ten sex workers.   Key Words: Sex Work, Women, Law, Gender inequality, Resistance

  • Life Paths of Successful Women Scientists in Spain

    • Authors: María José Barral Morán, Isabel Delgado Echeverría, Teresa Fernández Turrado, Carmen Magallón Portolés
      Abstract: This article discusses interactions between the life paths of women scientists and their status and contributions to science. It is a qualitative study which highlights factors that influenced the successful career of nine Spanish women scientists. These factors include the family encouragement, the novelty of the scientific field or branch in which they work, the mentors they had along their career and the periods of time spent abroad. The women scientist included in the sample are working in different fields: Physics, Psychology, and Neurobiology. The analysis of their professional paths reveals that to develop a successful scientific career, the organization of daily, domestic and private life is important, as well as the existence of other social opportunities which are outlined in the article.

  • Luce Irigaray's Aesthetic

    • Authors: Linda Daley
      Abstract: In this paper I examine some key texts in philosopher Luce Irigaray’s oeuvre that I name her aesthetic of sexual difference. Her aesthetic emerges both from critical engagements with women artists and theories of subjectivity formation and cultural formation. I argue that for Irigaray, art- making has an essential role in the thinking and practice of sexual difference. I also argue that because Irigaray reconfigures the terms on which aesthetics traditionally relies, her aesthetic is methodologically indicative, rather than substantively prescriptive of how sexual difference and sexuate culture might be represented.

  • State Feminism and the Basque Women's Movement: Transforming Gender
           Relations in the Home

    • Authors: Amy Leigh Crumly
      Abstract: This article explores the social and historical circumstances that contributed to the institutionalization of the Spanish Basque women's movement and in turn contributed to the development of a particular type of state feminism. In this context, state feminism is defined as the relationship between government political action directed at women through public institutions and the diffusion of the women's movement at the local level. State feminism is examined in relation to systems of gender relations and the division between the public and private domains. The day to day activities of the contemporary women's association, Mother of Alava, illustrates the ways government programs combine wih the mobilization of women at the local level to promote gender equality.
