Have we entered a historical moment of "post-feminism?" This volume presents a timely and convincing "no." These essays demonstrate that there is a new generation of French women who take up questions of equality and difference from a position distinct from either first or second wave feminism, a position that often attempts to move beyond the binary of equality and/or difference to a new form of the individual.

...offer[s] interested readers a wide spectrum of views and arguments that are likely to challenge them to review their own position regarding sexual difference, masculinity and feminism's future. * Catherine Dahlstrom, European Journal of English Studies *
