In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).

In this postfeminist age, normative notions of masculinity and femininity are being challenged and questioned. Both internationally and locally, there is a renewed debate about women's reproductive choice and freedom. On average, women continue to be underrepresented in government bodies and receive less pay than men in comparable employment. Whilst the female body remains a political site, notions of masculinities are also in flux.
