A comparative study of Sula and Beloved. 10. Shobha De the writer and feminism. 11. Elain Showalter on The poetics of gender. The term feminism has its origin from the Latin word femina meaning women (through French feminisme) and thereby refers to the advocacy of women's rights status and power at par with men on the grounds of equality of sexes. In this anthology the first two chapters give basic ideas about Feminism and Feminist movement. It gives details about French philosopher novelist and essayist and of course the mother of Feminism Simon De Beauvoir. Irigasay's work has influenced the feminist movement in France and Italy for several decades. Kate Millett is best known for her Sexual Politics. Shulamith Firestone's The Dialect of Sex became a major text in second wave feminism in the United States. Tony Morrison the black American feminist writers won the Pulitzer Frize for her fiction Beloved. Indian feminist writer journalist Shobha De gave new definition to the mass market bestseller with her writing in the 1990s. Elain Showalter is a noted American feminist critic. The issue of male involvement in feminist studies is negatively referred to by Showalter as Critical cross dressing. It is hoped that this book will be of good use for students researchers teachers and the lovers of Feminism and Feminist female writers. 142 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 62884
