Moscovici proposes a new understanding of how gender relations were
reformulated by both male and female writers in nineteenth-century
France. She analyzes the different versions of gendered citizenship
elaborated by Friedrich Hegel, George Sand, Honore de Balzac,
Auguste Comte and Herculine Barbin revealing a shift from a single
dialectical (or male-centered) definition of citizenship to a
double dialectical (or bi-gendered) one in which each sex plays an
important role in subject-citizenship and is defined as the
negation of the other sex. Moscovici further argues that a double
dialectical pattern of androgyny endows women with a (relational)
cultural identity that secures their paradoxical roles as both
representatives and outsiders to subject-citizenship in
nineteenth-century French society and culture.
