The authors deal with the issue of the gender aspect of modern prose. The problem of “women's prose” has existed for a long time, the controversy of the independent status of this concept also has its own history, however, has not received a final solution. The authors of the study propose their solution to this issue, highlighting several fundamentally important markers of feminine discourse, based on three basic foundations: the type of writing, the picture of the world, the image of personality. The analysis of the prose of the famous modern writer E. Nekrasova carried out in this study allows us to identify the differential features of this discourse: renomination, folklore techniques, rejection of binary oppositions, ellipticity of language and special poetry of artistic speech.
