Claiming A Feminist Intellectual HeritageBook - 2001
"Inventing Herself" is an expansive exploration of three centuries of feminist intellectuals, each of whom possesses a determination to alter the world by experiencing love, achievement, and fame on a grand scale. Focusing on figures ranging from Mary Wollstonecraft to Germaine Greer and Susan Sontag, Showalter uncovers common themes of women's lives across the centuries and discovers the feminist intellectual tradition they embodied.
