Sororophobia: Differences Among Women in Literature and Culture Summary


Sororophobia: Differences Among Women in Literature and Culture by Helena Michie (Associate Professor of English, Associate Professor of English, Rice University)

Helena Michie takes the notion of `otherness' as it has traditionally been used by Simone de Beauvoir and other feminists to designate the space between men and women, and transcribes it instead to the places between and among women. Its goal is to describe women's relations to each other and how these relations have been textually and culturally represented.

Sororophobia: Differences Among Women in Literature and Culture Reviews


'To sum up: I admire the readings that form the core of the book; they are subtle, strong, nuanced, full of fine discriminations. I also admire the general ambition of the book, its large theme and polemic about the need for recognizing differences among women and the ways in which the metaphors feminists have used may have obstructed the project. This argument will gain the book a wide and enthusiastic audience.' Margaret Homans, Yale University
`...she has collected some wonderfully apt examples of the trope of sisterhood from several melodramatic stage versions of Jane Eyre, and her brief essays on the mother-daughter country music duo known as the Judds and on the Olympic figure-skating competition are spirited and shrewd. ... Michie has a keen eye for rhetorical slippages, ... and she can juxtapose bits of heterogeneous evidence to telling effect, ... offers a salutary corrective to the wishful inclusiveness of some feminist theorising.' Ruth Bernard Yeazell, The London Review of Books
