Women Writers

Women in the media – the means by which our daughters see how the culture expects them to act – is not chock full of great role models. I see this already with my not yet four year old who already is clear on gender roles and defining between what is for boys and what is for girls.

Writers contribute to culture. What happens when women writers are interviewed – not about their writing but are asked questions more about them as women than as writers?

Women writers and bad interviews – Lorraine Berry at Talking Writing discusses how women writers are often subjected to questions that have nothing to do with writing when interviewed. Read the blog post here. Find out more about Talking Writing here.
