This amazing quote from Helene Cixous, which I just came across, casts, I think, a wonderful illumination on TTFO:
‘It is impossible to define a feminine practice of writing, and this is an impossibility that will remain, for this practice can never be theorized, enclosed, encoded, coded – which doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. But it will always surpass the discourse that regulates the phallocentric system: it does and will take place in areas other than those subordinated to philosophical – theoretical domination. It will be conceived of only by subjects who are breakers of automatons, by peripheral figures that no authority can ever subjugate. “The Laugh of the Medusa” Signs (1976) 883
