French Feminists on Religion offers the first representative selection of important writings by French feminist thinkers on the topic of religion, including the most influential and provocative texts on the subject from Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, Helene Cixous, Monique Wittig and Catherine Clement. Each thinker is introduced by a bibliographical preface, whlist individual essays are preceded by an editorial commentary explaining the context and significance of each piece for the study of religion.
