This anthology introduces the English-speaking reader to some of the major elements of recent French feminist thought with a series of full-length essays by French feminists, most of which are translated here for the first time, while some have been collected from scattered journals and reviews. While including contributions from well-known theorists such as Luce Irigaray and Julia Kristeva, the book aims particularly to demonstrate the variety of views held by French women on such central feminist issues as politics, sexual difference, creativity, writing and art, by providing a cross-section of texts from the women's movement, recent feminist research and intellectual debate in France. The book includes sections from the works of Simone de Beauvoir, Annie de Pisan, Anne Tristan, Christine Delphy, Arlette Farge, Elisabeth Badinter, Michele Le Doeuff, Sarah Kofman, and Michele Montrelay. "French Feminist Thought" also presents the English-speaking reader with the new feminist approaches to male-dominated disciplines such as history, philosophy and psychoanalysis.
