She traces the influential role of Greek women writers back to the sexual politics of censorship under the dictatorship (1967-1974). Through responses to censorship - including those of the dictator, the Nobel Laureate poet George Seferis, and the younger generation of poets - she shows how women poets use strategies which, although initiated in response to the dictators press law, prove useful in articulating a feminist critique.

In poetry by Rhea Galanaki, Jenny Mastoraki and Maria Laina, among others, she analyzes how the censors tactics for stabilizing signification are redeployed to disrupt fixed meanings and gender roles.
