The effects of feminism on French society, and in particular on masculine identity and on relations within the couple, are taken as a starting-point for the analysis of the French male psyche in the popular interpretations of masculinity examined in Chapter 2. French feminism or “French feminism” French feminism as it is understood by feminists in France is very different to “French feminism” as it is perceived in Britain and the United States. This difference has important implications for the choice of materials covered in this book and needs careful explanation.
Christine Delphy, another feminist activist since the beginning of the second wave, does not share this view (Delphy, personal correspondence). She sees the fluidity and exchange described by Picq as existing only within the confines of a “central” feminism, which was unaware of other feminist activity and therefore of divisions which might be visible from another standpoint. For example, Delphy claims that from as early as 1970 there was a clear split between “revolutionary” and “class struggle” feminists.
The women who had been involved in the movement from the beginning also began to worry about the new generation of young women who, they felt, were taking the gains of ten years of hard struggle for granted (Delphy, 1980; Picq, 1981). While denying that feminism was dead, feminists were nevertheless aware of the changes taking place in the movement. A frequent declaration by feminists was that feminism had been “institutionalized”. For many, the most potent symbol of this institutionalization was the creation of the Ministry for Women’s Rights when the Socialists came to power in 1981.
