Les Guérillères by Monique Wittig( Book )

66 editions published between 1917 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most widely read feminist texts of the twentieth century, and Monique Wittig's most popular novel, Les Guerilleres imagines the attack on the language and bodies of men by a tribe of warrior women. Among the women's most powerful weapons is laughter, but they also threaten literary and linguistic customs of the patriarchal order with bullets. In this breathtakingly rapid novel first published in 1969, Wittig animates a lesbian society that invites all women to join their fight, their circle, and their community. A pathbreaking novel about creating and sustaining freedom, the book derives much of its energy from its vaunting of the female body as a resource for literary invention

On a transcontinental train, a starlet fears her director may be trying to kill her. Four years after she arrived in Los Angeles, Kitten Agnew has become a star. Though beautiful and talented, she'd be nowhere without Vivien Spender: Hollywood's most acclaimed director and its most dangerous. But Kitten knew what she was getting into when she got involved with him; she had heard the stories of Viv's past discoveries: Once he discarded them, they ended up in a chorus line, a sanatorium, or worse. She knows enough of his secrets that he wouldn't dare destroy her career. But he may be willing to kill her. On a train from Los Angeles to Chicago, Kitten learns that Viv is planning to offer her roommate a part that was meant for her. If she lets him betray her, her career will be over. But fight for the part, and she will be fighting for her life as well

Résumé du film "Les prostituées de Lyon parlent" : Au printemps 1975, quelque deux cents femmes prostituées occupent l'église Saint-Nizier à Lyon. Rieuses ou craintives face à la caméra de Carole Roussopoulos, ou dissimulées maladroitement, elles témoignent en tant que "femmes et mères" pour exiger que cesse le harcèlement policier, fiscal et social dont elles sont victimes. À l'extérieur de l'église, des moniteurs vidéo retransmettent les débats pour les passants, des hommes pour la plupart. (Indiqué sur la jacquette)
