This book examines the relationship between gender and literature. The author imagines that women's writing has a potentially important role in female self-definition in what she perceives as a predominantly patriarchal society. Although the main focus is on feminist writing and the experience and needs of women, the arguments deployed in this context are also applied to other sections of society, ethnic minorities, that are excluded from mainstream patrichal culture.
