How to Suppress Women’s Writing

How to Suppress Women's Writing book coverPatty of Fiction/AV/Teen Services recommends How to Suppress Women’s Writing by Joanna Russ:

“She didn’t write it. She wrote it, but she shouldn’t have. She wrote it, but look what she wrote about. She wrote it, but she wrote only one of it. She wrote it, but she isn’t really an artist, and it isn’t really art. She wrote it, but she had help. She wrote it, but she’s an anomaly.” This is the quote on the front of Joanna Russ’ quick-reading, landmark feminist essay collection, How to Suppress Women’s Writing. In this sobering, yet often times humorous work, Russ outlines the ways in which patriarchal societies overtly or inadvertently devalue and censor women’s writing.
