Thinking the Difference: For a Peaceful Revolution

In these essays, the author discusses how language, religion, law, art science and technology have failed women and why. She goes beyond analysis and commentary to propose concrete changes tailored to women's specificity in all these fields - practical means of ensuring our culture is women's as well as men's. These changes, she argues, are crucial to the survival of humankind and the Earth itself. Irigary's other publications include Elemental Passions (1992), The Ethics of Sexual Difference (1993) and Speech is Never Neuter (1994).
