The author argues that feminists can successfully appropriate all four genres because genres, as cultural productions, have accommodated the cultural changes brought about by second-wave feminism. The book provides a history of each of the genres, reinstating womens contributions in those histories, and a comprehensive review of the feminist critical debates on each of the genres.
