"A major legacy of the woman’s movement has been precisely its validation of subjective response, personal experience, the seaking out in a woman’s own voice…Perhaps we could talk about the potential in feminist criticism or filmmaking for reconciling one’s own voie with the voice of history, and how connection might be set up between various methodologies, histories and one’s own experience."
-B. Ruby Rich, Women and Film: A Discussion of Feminist Aesthetics (1978)
"Mulvey’s article never positively articulated or defined women’s desire and women’s sexuality. Although women’s sexuality has been shaped under a dominant patriarchal culture, clearly women do not respond to women in film and the erotic element in film in quite the same way that men do, given that patriarchal film has the structure of a male fantasy."
-Julia Lesage, Women and Film: A Discussion of Feminist Aesthetics (1978)
