Foucault’s idea of power freely circulating in all directions (or discourse, or ideology) suggests that those who are oppressed push power/subversion and rebellion back at the oppressor. This diagram kind of shows power circulating between a binary, feminism vs. patriarchy. But of course, if we think of signifiers in terms of infinite webs of signifiers fluidly meaning in terms of differance, this would just be a very tiny portion of the circulation of power.
