Abstract

This essay offers close readings of three texts that in different ways foreground the problems, possibilities and struggle involved in forging affective connections across difference between women. I argue that the incomplete and partial nature of affective moments represented in these texts signal possibilities for a cautiously re-defined idea of affective feminist solidarity as it is mobilized in the intimacy of domestic spaces.
