Abstract

This article examines feminist fantasies of revolution and the revolutionary body, arguing that rather than seeking to substitute for law an order without a name, international law should instead be thought as a space in which to hold onto the question of authority, where crisis and revolution are not singular events but rather, movements that are created by the act of re-reading legal text.

Keywords: feminism, law, revolution, crisis, Kristeva
