The article discusses the question of political implications of French feminist theories,
also known as feminist avant-garde. Referring to the strategic re-reading of the concept
French Feminism by Christine Delphy, it is argued that such projects as écriture féminine have
been appropriated by postmodern Anglo-American critique, which tends to fetishize
the strategies of displacement and aestheticization of the political field. The aim of the
article is to examine whether contemporary feminist theories can take up the challenge of
French feminist avant-garde by going back to its political roots.
