Beginning with a glance on the radical and grassroots background of the 1st wave (with its starting place within the abolition stream of the time), Firestone records its significant victory, the granting of the vote to girls in 1920, and the fifty years of ridicule that undefined.

Far from it: she expressly argues that there is a need to reﬂect critically on ‘the limitations of dialectical opposition’ (‘GP’: 35). 52 This, in turn, compels attention to the broader historical and cultural context within which binaries appear. Part of this critical reﬂection also entails Butler rejecting the idea of full dialectical synthesis and, in this way, her work is much closer to that of Foucault and Derrida, as she describes them in Subjects of Desire, than to Hegel. 53 What, then, are the characteristics of this non-synthetic approach?
Given this, gender might be best conceived of as a ‘free-ﬂoating artiﬁce’ (GT: 10) and the sexed body simply as its ‘arbitrary locus’ (‘SG’: 35). If, however, there is a more determinate relation between sex and gender, then what is it based on? Since Butler rejects the idea that gender is an expression of sex, then the only alternative is that sex, far from being one of the determinants of gender, is actually one of its effects. Butler thus reads gender as the productive mechanism through which the sexes are themselves instituted (GT: 11).
7 As the reader of Gender Trouble soon discovers, however, in order to develop her critique of the sex/gender relation (or rather the sex/ gender/sexuality relation), Butler does not limit herself to an analysis of ‘French feminism’ in any sense; she ranges far more widely than that, engaging critically with psychoanalysis, in both Freudian and Lacanian variants, with the work of Foucault on sex and sexuality, with that of Monique Wittig on sex, gender and the lesbian, with Esther Newton’s writings on drag, as well as with the structuralist anthropology of Gayle Rubin.
