This arguable publication is the 1st systematic feminist interpreting of the paintings of Jean Baudrillard, probably the most pivotal figures in modern cultural thought, and is key examining for college students of feminist concept, sociology and cultural theory.  Drawing at the complete diversity of Baudrillard's writings the writer engages in a debate with:

* the paintings of Luce Irigaray, Judith Butler and Rosi Braidotti on identification, strength and desire
* the feminist main issue with 'difference' as an emancipatory construct
* writings on transgenderism and the functionality of gender
* feminist matters in regards to the objectification of women.

Through this serious engagement Grace finds a few of the boundaries of a few modern feminist theorising round gender and id, patriarchy and tool, and in so doing deals a fashion ahead for modern feminist thought.
