A reflection about feminism and Nietzsche's concept of identity as a narrative illusion, a social and political construction based on a logical fiction and created in order to serve someone else's interests.
Liminality means threshold, suggesting the delicate state of being between two positions, in transition. Women are able to to subvert the constraining logic of identity and live with contradictions, without being stuck in a specific role: we don't have to define and limit who and what we are in order to make easier for others the way to categorize us.
