Parthenogenetic Creation 1: work of feminist creation produced by women alone; woman-made work which may use males as re-sources but never as progenitors, spiritual fathers, mentors, or models. Examples: Les Guerilleres, by Monique Wittig; Mooncircles, by Kay Gardner; Websters’ First New Intergalactic Wickedary of the English Language
2: “method of Philosophia: method which seeks to construct a female train of thought, working with primary and secondary sources only by women; method which focuses more on actions of women for our liberation from patriarchy than on dissection and critique of patriarchy” — Emily Erwin Culpepper** This definition is developed and expanded in Emily Erwin Culpepper, “Philosophia: Feminist Methodology: Constructing a Female Train of Thought,” Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, vol. 3, no. 2 (Fall, 1987).
