Abstract

My manifesto in this chapter is based on early experiences of being a girl child, where through language and social development I was abstracted from embodied female knowing. As a child I found myself unsupported in terms of my own meaning making as female. Thus, writing to other women about the girl child I believe needs to be one of our most urgent considerations if we are to disrupt the inventions and re-inventions of androcentric thinking and constructions. Within the corporate academy, the genre of female writing offers women a way to disrupt androcentric and neoliberal constructions.
