Summary:
Cixous rejects the conclusions reached by Freud in the "Dora case" and rewrites the analysis without changing the sequence of events. In her play Portrait de Dora (published in Paris in 1976) Dora incarnates the injustices suffered by women within the family. The importance of the play is that it shifts responsibility from Dora to the entire society to which she belongs. Cixous's Dora becomes the symbol of woman who has overcome anguish and shattered the traditional "jougs et censures" opening the way to freedom.
