The text discusses the work of Judith Butler, Nancy Fraser and Carla Lonzi-Rivolta Femminile on the necessary relational dimension of the subjectivation process. While Butler and Fraser, in order to assess the theoretical and political feminist strategy, seem to contend with opposite diagnosis, focusing respectively on the pattern of domination and exploitation – that is to say, rereading Hegel either with Foucault or with Marx –, the Italian collective Rivolta Femminile, and Carla Lonzi are well known for their opposition to the Hegelian approach (see Let’s Spit on Hegel). Starting from the priority the Collective still attributes to relation as the preliminary condition of the becoming of the subject, an exceeding differential appears to act as the paradigm to address both cultural and material issues.
