"Fair use" encouraged.

This course is going to take a closer look at the poverty suffered by women, and of the contributions that feminists have made to understanding what feminine, feminist means, and in defining woman as something different from an "other," who is the opposite of "man." I'm going to use two approaches to do this. First, a novelistic approach. For the novel is the feminine genre. Second, a Bakhtinian approach, mirroring Bakhtin's concern with dialog, the other, and answerability.
