Among contemporary dramatists of post-war British drama, Caryl Churchill has a unique place. As an enthusiastic supporter of women rights and an iconoclast of modern drama she is the most original and enigmatic writer of her generation. Churchill’s socialist feminist voice is indisputably the strongest of the postmodern era. She creates a contemporary feminist landscape where the influence of male power can be felt everywhere in society. In her most masterly work Top Girls she creates a dark vision of success for women and shows the dialectics of this process. This article aims at revealing a critical appraisal of feminist discourse reflected in Churchill’s Top Girls in the light of dialectical reading.
