ABSTRACT

It is important to look at the position and status of ‘feminism’ in the literary discourse of the 2000s as the pre-history of the recent “Feminism discourse”. What was the status of ‘feminism’ in the field of literature of the past? How do women writers and critics, who have been rapidly and quantitatively expanding through the 1990s and 2000s, connect with the recent debate on feminism? This article discusses the aspects of ‘femininity’ or ‘women’s literature in the literary discourse and literary criticism of the 2000s and feminism discussions related to other ‘Others’, and ‘sub-version’ in the study of literature. In the literary discourse of the 2000s, when thinking about or discussing ‘women’, the idea that it should not be reduced to the so-called ‘Women’ was strong. I think it was a certain paradox of ‘speaking gender to get rid of gender’, so-called “Gender-Paradox”. This will be reflected in the methods of identifying and utilizing the core meaning and power of the new feminist practice and movement that has begun.
