It has been argued that the discourses of western culture are thoroughly masculinist and offer no place for women. Women's only possibilities are to speak in a masculine voice, construct a new language, or be silent. Foucault's highly influential analyses of power and knowledge would therefore be irrelevant for the women's movement, and use of his discourse might even undermine feminism as an emancipatory project.
