Filles corsaires constructs a feminist thought that has both feet in life: commitment is born from experience, theory is interwoven with narrative. We reinvent, at the same time as new ways of seeing the other, new ways of living our lives.
In this series of short essays, Camille Toffoli devotes herself to uncovering and deconstructing some of the blind spots in current feminist discourse. What do waitresses at diners, little ladies, country singers and rodeo champions have to teach us about gender relations and class privilege? In an age where voluntary celibacy and non-motherhood are still viewed with suspicion, one wonders if sexual autonomy is even possible. Could friendship have the potential to combat heteronormativity? Can sad women be leading feminist figures? How to think a politics of loneliness? The author investigates these questions, and many others, through a free writing where anecdotes are mixed with philosophical references. The thought takes intimate trajectories, it is built between karaoke evenings and two-egg brunch, along bike trips, working days in bookstores and LSD rides.
