by Catherine Malabou. In the post-feminist age the fact that 'woman' finds herself deprived of her 'essence' only confirms, paradoxically, a very ancient state of affairs: 'woman' has never been able to define herself in any other way than in terms of the violence done to her. Violence alone confers her being - whether it is domestic and social violence or theoretical violence.

In the post-feminist age the fact that ‘woman' findsherself deprived of her ‘essence' only confirms,paradoxically, a very ancient state of affairs: ‘woman' hasnever been able to define herself in any other way than in terms ofthe violence done to her. Violence alone confers her being -whether it is domestic and social violence or theoretical violence.The critique of ‘essentialism' (i.e. there is no specificallyfeminine essence) proposed by both gender theory and deconstructionis just one more twist in the ontological negation of thefeminine.

Contrary to all expectations, however, this ever more radicalhollowing out of woman within intellectual movements supposed toprotect her, this assimilation of woman to a ‘being nothing',clears the way for a new beginning. Let us now assume the thoughtof ‘woman' as an empty but resistant essence, an essence thatis resistant precisely because it is empty, a resistance thatstrikes down the impossibility of its own disappearance once andfor all. To ask what remains of woman after the sacrifice of herbeing is to signal a new era in the feminist struggle, changing theterms of the battle to go beyond both essentialism andanti-essentialism.
