The thesis is that women are not voiceless, but hold a powerful, liberating potential: they « throw their voices by implementing a strategic corporeal.

Notably, this mode is not carried out in a way of emphasising corporeal difference by lack, but by attributing positive markers to the body. It reaches beyond a speaking which only represents womens thoughts and emotions physically - a mode which might render the impression that they are incapable of expressing their conceptions and sentiments linguistically.
