From a unique variety of perspectives and angles, the essays in this collection explore the association of confession with femininity- they examine its function as a gender-specific discourse as they probe its many feminized genres and subgenres.

Confessional Politics investigates the creative and strategic ways in which women shape the telling of their sexual stories in order to resist and negotiate the confessional practices designed to position them in conventional sexual frameworks.Investigating the confessional politics of traditional forms of social life writing (including erotic diaries, journals, letters, and confessional fiction), this book significantly expands its focus beyond conventional forms to include practices affecting mass readerships and audiences.

The collection addresses provocative general topics: talk shows, sexual harassment, sexual abuse, sexuality, self-help books, and cross-dressing, as well as expressive works such as contemporary Canadian womens poetry, lesbian fiction, performance art, Anne Franks recently released complete diary, and memoirs.
