Abstract
A mediados del siglo XX, se dio una revolución cultural que dejó como resultado el surgimiento de una mujer libre e indeterminada, la cual, podía hacer lo que desease sin estar atada a estándares sociales o sexuados, típicos de las sociedades androcéntricas. Esta mujer mostró que no estaba preordenada ni limitada a un patrón de conducta específico, sino que podía elegir con libertad. Aun así, hay quienes todavía asocian a la mujer a un conjunto de actividades de corte doméstico. Es por esto, que las artistas venezolanas Malu Valerio y Mariana Sellanes muestran a través del trabajo textil la libertad y poder que ha adquirido la mujer, demostrando de esta forma que ella es un sujeto dirigido por sus gustos y emociones personales.
In the mid-20th century, a cultural revolution arose, and as a result, an independent and uncertain woman emerged. This new woman could do anything she would like without ha-ving to be tied to social or sexual standards that were common in androcentric societies, demonstrating she was neither predisposed nor limited to a specific behavioral pattern; on the contrary, she could have freedom of choi-ce. Nevertheless, there are certain individuals who still associate women solely to activities related to domestic duties. Therefore, the Venezuelan artists Malu Valerio and Mariana Sellanes showcased in their textile work the freedom and power women have achieved. By doing this, women are demonstrating they are individuals who are capable to follow their own emotions and preferences.
