imagine here a sound of disgust / by Laura Kochman

What Ruth Bader Ginsburg said:


When I first started working on Doors of New Jersey, I felt compelled to apologize for writing about women. For years, I've avoided writing emotionally, because I was told early on that emotions and sentiment make for bad writing. Let's not pretend that emotion and sentiment don't go hand in hand with a stereotype of female writing and the female perspective. Let's not pretend that the ruling in this case was just, or fair, or appropriate, or good. Let's not pretend that writing about women isn't important, or that women's rights are not an issue.
