Our bodies-ourselves ? Discrimination et émancipation corporelle dans la pensée féministe allemande

Abstract : At the example of four German feminist thinkers, this article seeks to point out the place of the body in the idea of bodily emancipation. Instead of searching for a German particularity, I am suggesting to question the feminist slogan (My body is mine!) by going back to these thinkers. I am analyzing the theoretical implications of these politics that are still typical in feminist struggles today. These reflections of corporeality are embedded in an analysis of the concept of emancipation, a concept that as I suggest is linked to ideas of modernity. Unlike earlier significations, modern emancipation is understood as the fight for independence by your own forces, like a counter-power that is directed against discrimination. Therefore the pair discrimination/emancipation already implies the taking of power, the empowerment.
