Abstract: This paper analyzes the different female voices in Caryl Churchill’s "Top Girls". Chapter I begins with an overview of the present-day attitude of women toward feminism. Next, it defines some of the various types of feminisms that have appeared in the Anglo-American world. Next, it focuses on the contradiction between the feminist ideal of equality and the reality of the differences between women. Chapter II begins with a brief description of the socio-political and economic context of the play. Next, it examines the female voices as they appear and communicate in the play. Further on, it inquires about the possibility for women to speak with a unified voice. Finally, the conclusions point out Churchill’s pluralist approach to feminism.
