Religion in French Feminist Thought: Critical Perspectives brings together some of the leading modern religious responses to major French feminist writings on religion. It considers central figures such as Helene Cixous, Julia Kristeva, Luce Irigaray and Catherine Clement, and its focus on questions of divinity, subjectivity, and ethics provides an accessible introduction to an area of growing philosophical interest. Illustrating the ways in which French feminism has become a valuable tool in feminist efforts to rethink religion, and responding to its promise as an intellectual resource for religious philosophy in the future, Religion in French Feminist Thought is ideal both for independent use and as a companion book to French Feminists on Religion (Routledge, 2001).
