Questions féministes (Feminist Questions) was a French feminist journal published from 1977 to 1980.

The journal was founded by a group of feminists that included Simone de Beauvoir, Christine Delphy, and later Monique Wittig.[1] It published for three years, ultimately dissolving over divided perspectives on heterosexuality, which came to a head in the May 1980 issue with opposing essays from Wittig on the one hand ("The Straight Mind") and Emmanuèle de Lesseps ("Heterosexuality and Feminism") on the other.[2] The editorial collective agreed to stop publishing Questions feministes, and one group of editors, including Delphy and de Beauvoir, left to launch a new journal instead, called Nouvelles Questions Féministes (New Feminist Questions).[3]
