‘I wished [that that] woman would write and proclaim this unique empire so that other women, other unacknowledged sovereigns, might exclaim: I, too, overflow; my desires have invented new desires, my body knows unheard-of songs. Time and again I, too have felt so full of luminous torrents that I could burst – burst with forms much more beautiful than those which are put up in frames and sold for a stinking fortune…Who, surprised and horrified by the fantastic tumult of her drives hasn’t accused herself of being a monster? Who, feeling a funny desire stirring inside her (to sing, to write, to dare to speak, in short to bring out something new), hasn’t thought she was sick? Well, her shameful sickness is that she resists death, that she makes trouble.’
The Laugh of the Medusa, Helene Cixous, 1975
