Écriture féminine: 15th March 2013

In Helene Cixous writes in The Laugh of the Medusa:

I shall speak about women’s writing: about what it will do. Woman must write her self: must write about women and bring women to writing, from which they have been driven away as violently as from their bodies-for the same reasons, by the same law, with the same fatal goal. Woman must put herself into the text-as into the world and into story-by her own movement.

At this meeting we will be looking at french feminist literary theory through the work of Helene Cixous, Luce Irigaray, Julia Krsiteva, Monique Wittig and Chantal Chawaf.
