Every Monday, I go LIVE on Facebook to talk about the author mindset. In this video, I talk about seeing Colette in the cinema, Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, and how far we’ve come in the writing arena, not just women but everyone who isn’t a white, heterosexual male from the middle and upper classes.
Acknowledging that this doesn’t mean we’re done yet, that the fight isn’t over, I ask myself the question to what extent we’re the only ones keeping ourselves back these days? The external influences authors as Colette and Woolf had to fight are long gone, aren’t they? Does this mean the only struggle we’re having today is an internal one, or are we’re still being held back by societal structures and demands?
