      ‘The paradox of woman, a being that is at once captive and absent in discourse, constantly spoken of but of itself inaudible or inexpressible, displayed as spectacle and yet unrepresented, a being whose existence and specificity are simultaneously asserted and denied, negated and controlled.’[1]
       
        ‘The female image with which man has interpreted woman has been his own invention’[2]
