Feminism, psychoanalysis and postmodernism : bridging the discourses Zafar, Yasmeen


This paper seeks to analyze the inter-relationship of three theories: feminism, psychoanalysis and postmodernism. It attempts to do this by focussing on the issue of sex crimes; how each theory provides an explanation for the phenomenon of sex crimes. It goes on to examine each theory in more detail, using their position on sex crimes as a starting point to a discussion of their theoretical foundations. It acknowledges the major writers in the field and notices the current trend of analysis to be that of merger between the theories. The paper examines both the feasibility and validity of such a merger.
