There was always a group of female writers in New York helping each other and advising each other on which editor might be more reasonable. But I didn’t realize that this could be changed until the women of the anti-Vietnam War movement and the civil rights movement, movements that our generation loved, but in which women were still largely in a traditional role, they started to rebel against this and say: ‘Wait, we must have an autonomous movement for women“, Said in 2016 to the newspaper The country from Spain.
