Contemporary Latin American feminisms are going through a growing visibilization where the body occupies a central place. These bodies question the uniqueness of the subject "woman" and the category "gender" as the only vector of oppression. Through the ethnographic method, I find in the public manifestations of Ecuadorian feminisms four figurations: the whore, the witch, the body-territory and the carishina (in kiwcha, as a male). I conclude that through the performativity of these bodies feminist subjectivities are negotiated and conceptions about the body and gender violence are reworked.
