This e-book seems at how adjustments between ladies were textually represented at quite a few ancient moments and in a number of cultural contexts, together with Victorian mainstream fiction, African-American mulatto novels, past due twentieth-century lesbian groups, and modern nation track. Sororophobia designates the advanced and moving family among women's makes an attempt to spot with different ladies and their usually simultaneous wish to determine and preserve distinction. Michie argues for the centrality to feminism of a paradigm that strikes past celebrations of id and sisterhood to a extra nuanced idea of women's relatives with different ladies that can comprise such uncomfortable techniques as envy, jealousy, and festival in addition to extra institutionalized principles of distinction akin to race and sophistication. Chapters on literature are interspersed by means of "inter-chapters" at the choreography of sameness and distinction between ladies in pop culture.
