Summary/Abstract: Alice Voinescu: Constructing Feminine Identity. One of the most promising intellectual figures of her time, Alice Voinescu fell into obscurity and sadly never managed to impact Romanian society as much as she could have. Her diary entries reveal a complex figure often at odds with traditional gender roles. She had high confidence in Christian values and also kept under close scrutiny the rise and fall of important cultural icons shaping the age: from Queen Maria, much respected by her, to her Communist oppressors. Always concerned with the possibility of authenticity against the background of injustice, she left behind a diary that is both an enlightening and a puzzling text.
