In "Je, Tu, Nous" Luce Irigaray offers an introduction to her own work. This series of short essays on language, power, women, gender, and patriarchal mythologies lays out what for her has become the central problem for women in the modern world. In these brief and direct pieces, Irigaray considers women's experience of motherhood, age, and the beauty system, the treatment of AIDS in society, cultural ideas of love, the way "social" change depends upon "linguistic change", why only mothers can educate daughters, and how women need to find their own subjectivity. Only in that recovery will women create a female identity and discover the cultural means to live in accordance with "their" needs, "their" desires, "their" rights and obligations. Only when there is a separate, female "I" will any woman be able to join to another, different "you" to create a plural "we".
