turn something upon itself Does the first part of the following context mean that "Wilke succeeds in turning the male gaze, that is a means of controlling women's bodies, into a means against the male gaze itself"? Context: Wilke succeeds in turning the male gaze back upon itself as a means of control, and realizes the feminine subject as maker and as a mind, not just as a body/object.
