After examining some unresolved problems in feminism two important contemporary theoretical models are analysed: that of Habermas and that of Luhmann, this one being seen as offering a perspective based on "difference". At the end some reflections are made concerning the kind of policies which would result from positions no longer limited to a rigid conception of the question of identity.
