Deconstruction and Feminism

  • Diane Elam
Chapter

Abstract

Feminism. Again? There is now talk that feminism is yesterday’s news, an item to be consigned to suitcases belonging to the historically inclined and the academically obsessed. Politics has moved on, passions have faded, feminism is history. Irrelevant rather than irreverent as far as new generations of women are concerned, feminism, some say, is marked as the rebel whose causes will be left behind, back in the twentieth century.
