Abstract or Description

If the notion of the cyborg has forced us to rethink what femininity is and what a feminist politics does then it has become important to ask which are the new modalities of sexual difference that have sprawled in its aftermath?
The article highlights that new modalities of sexual difference recently influencing feminist politics have been mostly sustained by theories of post-feminism or post-gender feminism. Before explaining the implications of these theories, it highlights the crucial role that scientific theories and technologies of communication and reproduction have played in the cultural politics of gender.
