Through readings of Nancy Chodorow, Judith Rose and Julia Kristeva, the book analyzes the relation of theories of self-identity to theories of womens identity, social identity and feminist solidarity. Drawing particularly on the work of Julia Kristeva, the book argues for a reformulation of self-identity as a capacity to participate in a social world, and sketches a model of a self-identity which depends on a capacity to accept non-identity, difference and connections to others.
