A landmark feminist critique with a new foreword by Jessa Crispin, author of Why I Am Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto, this provocative book surveys the forces that work against women who dare to write.
Are women able to achieve anything they set their minds to? In How to Suppress Women’s Writing, award-winning novelist and scholar Joanna Russ lays bare the subtle — and not so subtle — strategies that society uses to ignore, condemn, or belittle women who produce literature. As relevant today as when it was first published in 1983, this book has motivated generations of readers with its powerful feminist critique.
