While, in general, few can doubt the role feminism has played in the rectification of perceived social wrongs against women, misgivings and deep uncertainties are becoming clear in the literatures either about the extent of that role or whether, in the case of literary representation, doctrinaire feminism should continue to play any role at all. The principal stimulus for the doubt has come from the well-known debate concerning the integrity of male representation of the females; the same debates which empowered the revisionary aesthetics so crucial to the entrenchment and sustenance of feminist literature and its associated discourse.
