Abstract provided by Publisher
The objects studied in this work in the most general terms are feminist ideas about the
oppression of women in their sex life. Perspective of reflection settles on the concept of
durable patterns-disposition systems of thought and action understood as habitus in accordance
with Male dominance by Pierre Bourdieu. In order to find these social forms
resistant to change, a comparative analysis of feminist French literature works of different
periods and streams was conducted. The Second Sex by existentialist Simone de Beauvoir
and This Sex Which Is Not One by Luce Irigaray, a feminist of difference, Irigaray were considered.
The purpose of the article, in addition to highlighting the existing contemporary
symbolic structures on the body and sexuality, is to test the thesis of the incompatibility of
feminisms emerging from different theoretical approaches.
