Monique Wittig, an influential woman of the radical feminist movement, left an important mark on the world in both the literary and the feminist senses. Her unique writing style showed intelligence and wit, and was appreciated by wide audiences. Her various works played as influential a role as she. I will examine select works and their use of religious texts and symbolism, focusing on Christianity, and the interpretations used by Wittig to support the views of radical feminism.
