PAULILO, Maria Ignez S.. Intellectuals and militants: possibilities of dialogue. Estud. fem. [online]. 2010, vol.5Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0104-026X.
The purpose of this article is to explain the concept of Nature that grounds the ideas and actions of the Peasant Women's Movement, and to propose means for dialogue between militants and intellectuals. The paper duly takes into account that, while academic feminism is strongly influenced by deconstructionist lines of thought, farming women sustain the idea, based on a deeply religious vision, of a natural identification between women and Nature. In pointing out possibilities of dialogue, the paper underlines the importance of schools of thought connected with the sociology of comprehension.
