Drafting Monique Wittig

Monique Wittig (1935 – 2003) was an influential feminist writer who explored the intersections of gender roles, sexuality, language and literary form. Her first novel, L’Opoponax, published in 1964, was awarded the Prix Médicis and Les Guérillères, from 1969, became a touchstone for revolutionary expression, a source of ideas for many major feminist and lesbian thinkers and writers.
