The Writing Or the Sex?, Or, Why You Don't Have to Read Women's Writing to Know It's No Good
This text questions the differences between female and male literature. Taking the view that the difference lies not within the writing itself, but in the response to the writing, the author writes that men have been in charge of according value to literature, and that they have found the contributions of their own sex immeasurably superior. The author presents evidence for a form of literary criticism which takes account of the exploitative practices of men.
