Women in German Yearbook, Volume 16, a refereed journal presenting feminist approaches to German literature and culture, focuses on moder Austria. It features interviews with Barbara Frischmuth and Elfriede Jelinek, a review of recent feminist studies of contemporary Austrian women writers, and a translation from Jelinek's Malina filmscript, as well as articles on Ingeborg Bachmann's Simultan, Anna Mitgutsch's gypsy texts, and a 1929 novel on working women and motherhood. Articles on female office workers in Weimar film and on women university students in fiction open the general section, which also offers studies on the Penthesilea and Cassandra themes (Kleist and Wolf), the discourse of female terrorism in the 1970s, and women academics in post-Wall East Germany.
