‘Domestication’ is the turning of feminism into a discourse which, rather than challenging
and transforming the existing status quo, and particularly the capitalistic mode
of production and the whole of practices and ideologies connected to this latter, serves
as its support. Why and with what results, such a turning towards Domestication has
taken place? This article contributes to this largely debated issue by proposing to think
that the domestication of feminism is linked to the domination of ‘Gender’ as an analytical
and political tool.
