Le genre institutionnalisé, une machine antipolitique ?

Abstract : Since the end of colonialism, in South Africa as well as in Senegal, the mechanisms for institutionalizing gender multiplied. They focused on issues of equal rights between men and women. This option reflects the choices of state leaders who, in the first case, highlight issues of race and class and a strong anti-feminism, and in the second case, are moving toward a feed paternalism and a sophisticated state feminism. These choices of national policies, supported by international ones, have direct impacts on the feminist and women's organizations mobilization, which are in a position to choose between alliance and break with the governmental institutions. The actions of the organizations that have chosen alliance are depoliticized in the sense that they move away from political power issue. Furthermore, there is an NGO-isation of struggles, which biases the gender relations’ representation and put them away from the deconstruction of the relations of domination.
