Abstract: Este artigo analisa brevemente as representações de mulheres não ocidentais no discurso e nas práticas sociais e políticas no Ocidente. Desde as posições conservadoras de direita ao feminismo progressista, parece permanecer em vigor uma espécie de representações culturalistas (neo)coloniais que invisibilizam e silenciam as mulheres dos Outros. Será que nós, ocidentais, estaremos realmente a contribuir para as causas delas?
This article briefly discusses how non‑‑western women are represented in discourse and in social and political practices in the West. From conservative right‑‑wing positions to progressive feminism, it seems that some kind of (neo)colonial culturalist representations are still at work to render the women of the Rest invisible and their voices unheard. Are we, as westerners, really championing for their causes?
