RODRIGUES, Carla. Performance, gender, language and otherness: Butler as reader of Derrida. Sex., Salud Soc. (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, n.10, pp. 140-164. ISSN 1984-6487. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1984-64872012000400007.
This article discusses two propositions by philosopher Judith Butler: gender as performance and gender as parody. A retrieval of the works of philosopher Jacques Derrida supports hypotheses on the dialogue between the two authors, which allow for an understanding of Butler's arguments not as 'against' feminism, but as a challenge to the terms by which the emancipatory claims of identity politics have been formulated.
