The rationale behind this anti-humanist stance is that women find themselves at a cultural zero point, since they have been either minimized or depleted by all historical, anthropological or psychological theories of humankind and by all philosophical or linguistic systems of thought. Women's situation of intellectual vacuum is expressed by Cixous's metaphor ofthe "murder scene" on which all patriarchal cultures are founded, and by Feral's play on the word "Nothing" and her subsequent reference to women's initial bitter laughter on facing their own absence from all traditional means of expression.

French Feminism and Theatre In their fight for sexual equality, many feminists in general have chosen to play down "sexual difference," which they perceive as a sexist notion with pseudo-biological connotations. Deeply informed by Lacanian psycho-analytical research on the functioning of desire and sexuality in language,5 their works promote the expression ofthe repressed feminine unconscious and female body. They want to create a positive mythology of femininity through a "different" discourse and a "different" poetics which will subvert the dominant symbolic order.

Their celebration of woman as multiple sensuous body, triumphant giving mother, and infinite source of forms, images and sounds, and their assertion of a feminine language which, like female desire, can be fluid, moving, multiple, discontinuous and open, represent a conscious effort to produce a new imaginary order with matriarchal overtones. Their writings may sometimes recall the familiar saying "Vive la difference," the reason why they have been called "anti-feminist" by otherfeminists.
