Introduction: The Unconventional Feminine

  • Abi Doukhan


Ever since the sexual revolution when it was determined that woman would no longer passively submit to the rigid and degrading roles inflicted upon her by patriarchy, woman has been searching for new ways to express herself and individuate as a woman. Womanhood has been in the making since then and the exploration of the endless possibilities that are open for a woman to express herself as a woman has been exhilarating. This introduction situates the book in this movement of exploration as well as explores the genre of wisdom literature to which the Song of Songs belongs.
