Nationalist projects are multiplex, multi-dimensional and

historically specific. The main aspects looked at in this article are

those relating to genealogy and origin, those related to culture and

tradition and those related to citizenship and state. In all of them

gender relations play crucial roles, constructing notions of

femininity and masculinity, naturalize power relations and reproduce

biologically, culturally and symbolically national collectivities.

Feminist politics, aimed at the promotion of women-s position and

power in all societies has had to confront the reality that their

positions, as that of the men in their national collectivities, are

constructed by a myriad of social divisions and other historical

forces. Only by acknowledging and confronting differences among

women as well as among men, can there be any process of political

dialogue which could transcend and bridge these differences.
