Feminism's Family Drama (Final Accept).pdf - Accepted Version
This article considers Kate Walbert’s A Short History of Women (2009), whose fragmented narrative is preoccupied with the continuities and fissures in the history of feminism and with the changes in women’s lived experiences that have shaped its developments from the nineteenth to the present. By exploring feminist history through female genealogy, Walbert’s historiographic metafiction illustrates the perils and potentials of the generational methods that have predominated feminist historiography in recent decades. By thus engaging in feminism’s family drama, the novel provides a self-conscious illustration of feminist genealogies as simultaneously fruitful and fraught, limiting and liberating, and yet inescapable and useful.
