The female body, with its history as an object of social control, expectation, and manipulation, is central to understanding the gendered construction of shame. Through the study of 20th-century literary texts, The Female Face of Shame explores the nexus of femininity, female sexuality, the female body, and shame. It demonstrates how shame structures relationships and shapes women's identities. Examining works by women authors from around the world, these essays provide an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective on the representations, theories, and powerful articulations of women's shame.

This is a wide-ranging collection analyzing literary representations of the links betwen women and shame. Johnson . . . and Moran . . . have taken pains to make the collection's range as inclusive as possible by including essays on modern and contemporary literary texts from many nations, read from a variety of identity positions (queer, disabled, and women of color are all represented). . . Recommended. * Choice * Johnson and Moran's volume is well presented, highly original and deeply moving. As well as providing a new theoretical framework in which women's literature and experience can be discussed, it is significant that this is not only an academic text, but also a source of comfort, understanding and hope to marked women who suffer the emotional anguish of shame within their societies. * Women's Studies International Forum *
