Cambria Press New Book! Fearless Femininity by Women in American Theatre (1910s to 2010s) by Lynne Greeley
Excerpts from Fearless Femininity by Women in American Theatre (1910s to 2010s) by Lynne Greeley; this book is in the Cambria Contemporary Global Performing Arts by John Clum (Duke University):
On the performance of the feminine no longer belonging to men:
“From the beginning of the twentieth century, when women were claiming the right to be in a public space while keeping their private reputations intact, to the beginning of the twenty-first century, when female artists claim and display their own bodies by choice, artists in American theatre have proved that the performance of the feminine no longer belongs to a mystique created by men but to the women who choose to be and do and sell as they please.”
On the idea of femininity:
“Whether contemporary females, transgender, or queer people love, hate, or are indifferent to the idea of femininity, their cultural conditioning creates personal responses to it that are rarely neutral. What is new about this writing is the demonstration of the intimate relationship between femininity and feminism, a combination that has created a century of powerful—and not always feminine—feminists.”
