Author and Feminist Scholar Marilyn French Dead at 79

Marilyn French died. When I was an undergraduate, every female student that I was friends with owned a copy of The Women's Room.

More about Marilyn French here and here.


  1. And, yes, I owned a copy of The Woman's Room too.

  2. I thought she was a genius. The impact The Women's Room had on me was immeasurable. Everyone I knew was reading it back in the 1970s-80s.
