«Somewhere between emancipation and liberation were Free Women…..»

«…Handing the manuscript of the Golden Notebook to publisher and friends I learned that I had written a tract about the sexwar, and fast discovered that nothing I said then could change that diagnosis…But this novel was not a trumpet for Women’s Liberation. It described many female emotions of aggression, hostility and resentment. It put them into print. Apparently what many women were thinking, feeling, experiencing, came as a great surprise. Instantly a lot of very ancient weapons were unleashed» DORIS LESSING
