The first thing you might ask is this: who am I, Paul Williams, to be writing a chapter on l’ecriture feminine? It’s a question that must be asked because it raises the issue of whether other genders and sexes have different ways of writing, how other genders experience and write the world differently, and even more importantly, how white, cis-gendered, able-bodied men’s voices have dominated literary discourse, women’s and ‘other’ voices have been silenced, and men tend to speak over women and others, appropriating their voices.
