This book offers a critique of power feminism using the critical theories of Theodor Adorno and Jacques Derrida. It counters a triumphalist reading of female empowerment using the “negative,” parergonal philosophies of these two authors, and advocates listening to the sufferer rather than celebrating the triumphalism of the reigning neoliberal order.
