This chapter offers a reflection on how we are directed along certain paths, often through the promise of happiness. It also explores how we are redirected by the threat of unhappiness. Drawing on Virginia Woolf’s classic novel Mrs. Dalloway, the chapter explores how in becoming feminist we become estranged from the shape of our own lives. The killjoy reappears here as the one who is made happy by the wrong things. The chapter considers feminism as an unhappy archive.
