In her controversial book Women's Words, Mona Ozouf argues that French feminism lacks the rancor and resentment of its counterpart in America and explains why this placid brand of feminism is uniquely French.

Ozouf uses the woman's portrait, traditionally a male genre, to portray ten French women of letters whose lives span the period from the eve of the French Revolution to the resurgence of the feminist movement in the late twentieth century. Ozouf restores these women's voices in order to study their own conflicted attitudes toward education, marriage, motherhood, sex, and work, as well as the dilemma of writing in a literary world that did not support women's work. Ozouf claims that a uniquely French feminism informed these women's lives, one that stems from the egalitarian spirit of the French Revolution and is more tolerant of difference than its American counterpart. As a result, modern French culture has not isolated women from men in the same way that American culture has done.
