An unprecedented number of women writers of French from outside France are currently contributing to a crucial and timely reconfiguration of “French feminism” that reflects the growing diversity of “French” “feminists” today. Thanks to various backgrounds that extend around the globe, these writers are capable of literary creations that effectively demonstrate new approaches to feminist concerns in France from an international perspective. This talk stems from interviews Dr. Rice conducted in Paris with such figures as Hélène Cixous and Julia Kristeva, among others.
