Title : Men's Use of Female Symbols [the author argues that pardoxically men, powerful and clerical, needed to become weak and human as "spiritual" women for salvation; the author concludes in part: "Whatever explanation one proposes, it is clear that women's way of using and living symbols was different from men's. The differences lay not merely in what symbols were chosen but also in how symbols related to self. Where men stressed male/ female contrasts and used imagery of reversal to express their dependence on God, women expressed their dependence on God in imagery at least partly drawn from their own gender and avoided symbolic reversals." (Pages 288-289)].

Title : Fictions of the Female Voice: The Women Troubadours [Trobairitz (female troubadours) experimented with literary and cultural definitions of sex and gender in their poetry. They manipulated a very conventional form (a male speaker addressing a distant, silent lady) and invented their own distinctive literary versions of the female voice. Even though it is hard to define, the notion of voice in literary texts is a powerful concept for feminist writers. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
