The “beyond” in the title of this book is not meant to indicate that women’s issues have been resolved in France, or elsewhere for that matter, and that the concept of feminism is no longer needed and can begin to wither away like the proverbial state. Rather, it aims to stress a number of new phenomena that illustrate the differences between recent debates about women and gender in France and those that took place in the 1970s, which became known in the United States as “French feminisms.” What the essays in this collection also reveal, however, are the culturally specific continuities between these recent developments and the French feminisms of three decades ago.
