This paper is part of a larger multidisciplinary Project (with the tentative: “Women in Confinement”), now being developed at the Centro de Estudios Genealógicos, A. C. among various researches, most of them young philosophers and social scientists, the purpose of which is to answer questions such as the following: What are the most important characteristics of the various forms of feminine subjectivity nowadays? Under what circumstances, social practices, power-knowledge relations, games of truth and internalization processes did they emerge? How will the clarification of such concepts can help to achieve better forms of life, starting with “daring to think differently”, as Michel Foucault used to say? Finally, all the foregoing aims finally to try different ways towards social critique.
