Description

The last two decades have been transformational, often discordant ones for German feminism, as a new cohort of activists has come of age and challenged many of the movement's strategic and philosophical orthodoxies. Mad Madchen offers an incisive analysis of these trans-generational debates, identifying the mother-daughter themes and other tropes that have defined their representation in German literature, film, and media. Author Maggie McCarthy investigates the subjectivity of individuals processing political discourse, revealing an approach to identity that affirms itself through difference while maintaining affinities among overlapping selves. Ultimately, such a model suggests new ways of re-imagining feminist solidarity across generational, ethnic, and racial lines.
