RODRIGUES, Carla. Sexual difference, rights and identity: a debate arising from the poststructuralist theory. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2010, n.34, pp. 209-233. ISSN 0104-8333. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-83332010000100009.
The analysis of philosopher Jacques Derrida and his dialog with the philosophy of both Heidegger and Emmanuel Levinas is the starting point for this paper, which presents a discussion about sexual difference, establishing a link between the issues of sexual difference and claim for women's rights as a way to overcome the hierarchy of gender, which is implicit in the feminine/masculine dualism and questioned by deconstruction. This paper attempts to show the possibilities of alliance between deconstruction and feminists theories.
