Thus, they would be able to orient their actions in line with the actions of all women. In his analysis, Habermas, whose theory is the basis of some of these feminists’ work, proposes a relationship between researcher subject and researched subject: for according to the presuppositions of the communicative model of action, the agent possesses just as rich an interpretative competence as the observer himself (Habermas 1987: 118). We are also proposing and developing this idea from our experience and observations in dialogic and feminist educational contexts.

Weiler, as well as some other followers of these eclectic trends, aim to advance Freire’s theory, but their confusion brings them to defending the 14 CHAPTER 1 dissolution of women, capable of questioning and changing the democratic processes in society. The current feminist debate is full of theoretical interpretations that are contradictory in their very foundations. Finding Habermas together with Foucault (as a theoretical grounding) is as common as seeing the defense of opposing concepts such as sexual freedom (based on validity claims) together with prostitution (based on power claims) at demonstrations.

In traditionally oriented centers, power claims define the relationships between the professional staff and the rest of the participants. What learners think, want or consider about their role as women and participants in the center, does not affect or create any changes. They have the role as receivers, and never transmitters of knowledge, a situation that often resembles the reality in their homes. On the contrary, in dialogically oriented centers and associations, women intersubjectively define and share the context of their lifeworld.
