Welcome to Women Writers. We try to function as a community of women readers. We discuss issues of interest to women as well as their art, writing, music, crafts and lives. We are much more a literary than political list, but it is assumed you are a feminist and progressive in outlook. I ask that everyone use his or her real name, provide a brief introduction, and behave courteously. Everything you are reading and doing by and having to do with women is welcome. Men are welcome but we stay with art by or (in the case of film) made with or by women. We are just now without enough people or interest in the practice to have group readings and discussions. I would like everyone who decides to subscribe to regard this space as a somewhere to express your ideas about women's issues and women's art, and enjoy yourself with others.
For September into October: Margaret Atwood, specifically her Stone Mattress, but also any and all of her works
Later November into December: Simone de Beauvoir's Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter: topic: mother/daughter relationships
January: Toni Morrison: choices include Beloved, The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon
Still hoping for: 3. Alison Lurie's The Language of Clothes; 4) Nadime Gorimer's Burgher's Daughter. 5) Ellen Wilkinson's Clash and Mary Taylor's Miss Miles 6) Eva Figes - a Day in Giverny: Light.
We also welcome all talk about films by and for women -- especially when writer, director producer are women and the focus is on women characters. But Women's films easily include films by men dealing with women's issues too.
