    • 2013, Lynn Huffer, Mad for Foucault: Rethinking the Foundations of Queer Theory
      This has meant also a postfeminist, postqueer shift toward a different Foucault than the one we were obsessed with in the 1980s and nineties. If we still use him, it is usually for purposes other than sex: the rethinking of race, sovereignty, religion, and nation.

postfeminist (plural postfeminists)

  1. One who belongs to the postfeminism movement.

      But to call a group of researchers postfeminist without exploring what exactly that means belittles both feminists and postfeminists alike.
