Feminist Biblical Criticism

I wrote a paper on the influence of Existentialism and Simone de Beauvoir in Feminist biblical Interpretation this semester for my Women and the Bible course. This is my final paragraph. Leave me some feedback!

“Through Feminist Biblical Criticism, women are slowly moving away from the social and ideological distinction as “Other.” Women can now deal with their feelings of existential dread and angst in just the same useless manner that men may. However, the distinction must remain forever. For, at bottom, the bearers of consciousness define all language  metonymically. Without male there is no female. Without white there is no black. Without western there is no eastern. If humanity wishes to continue discussions about gender in comprehensible ways, then gender distinction will not disappear. One may only venture to hope that the eyes of this world will open to face this problematic abyss. Lest Aporia descends upon the still waters of complacency.”
