This study introduces the English-speaking reader to a range of contemporary French women's writing. The first section discusses the cultural conditions which led to an explosion of new writing by women in the 1970s, examining the impact of the emergence of second-wave feminism both on what women have written and how it has been received. This is followed by selections from the work of seven women writers, many translated for the first time, together with introduction of their work. Elizabeth Fallaize is the author of The Novels of Simone de Beauvoir.
