This bookaddresses the question of gender in poststructuralist theoretical discourse, postmodern fiction, and women's cinema. It examines the construction of gender bothas representation and as self-representation in relation to several kinds of textsand argues that feminism is producing a radical rewriting, as well as a rereading, of the dominant forms of Western culture.
