FEMALE GAZE - Reading List 10

La Piccioletta Barca

This month explored the contested notion of 'female gaze' and how writers have constructed what it means for a voice to be ‘womanly'. We focused on women as creators, spectators and protagonists. For this discussion, we eliminated the idea of a ‘core’ text as an organising principle and made it non-hierarchical.

- Happening by Annie Ernaux (novella: https://www.sevenstories.com/books/3152-happening)

- Fever Dream directed by Claudia Llosa, adapted from a novel by Samanta Schweblin (on Netflix)
