Abstract
The notion of a 'postmodernist' feminism is contradictory because feminism is a politics and postmodernism, with its inability to name male domination, is incapable of feminist political engagement. This inability is largely the result of its rejection of what is referred to as 'meta-narrative' and 'totalising discourse'. And yet, if feminism is to make any inroads into the male supremacist hegemony, it has to be at least as far reaching as male supremacy itself, if not more so.
